This evening, we talk with the president of the PBMA – James Stanfill. Over the many years of being in the bicycle business, there have been several attempts at giving bicycle mechanics some sort of certification as well as offering a forum for advice, information, and education. The PBMA was formed for exactly these reasons and more. As bicycle shops dwindle in numbers and on line retailers take a larger and larger chunk of the bicycle market, the opportunity for bicycle mechanics who do not own their own shops will continue to diminish. And, while many enthusiasts are able to work on their own bikes. others are not as confident or competent to be their...

WOW – it went by super fast it seems. Tonight, it’s once again round-the-globe to Christchurch, New Zealand this time to speak with Evelin Bourne. Evelin and I “met” on FaceBook and as I followed some of the things she was doing and saying, I wanted to know more about her. American born and raised, Evelin and her wife, Karen Taylor, took a bicycle tour to New Zealand to celebrate 20 years together… and Evelin decided THAT was where she wanted to live. Along with their Corgi Potter, they moved “down under” in 2006 and they absolutely LOVE the country that is now their permanent home. We talk about Evelin’s journey to NZ, why...
