So rather than foist them upon you (and unsuspecting guests!) I decided to bring back a couple of my favorite interviews from past shows. One of those is with Gary Helfrich – at the time (2011) he was part of the Sonoma County bicycle scene.

Italian in the Tuscany tradition! Roland pulls NO punches about what he believes, how he builds frames, and what he thinks about today’s offerings in the bike biz.

Back in September 2010, it never occurred to me that I would be on the air for almost 5 years!!! Yet, here we are celebrating our 250th show! And, in a mini-celebration, I would like to revisit two of my favorite interviews. For those of you who discovered The Outspoken Cyclist AFTER 2011, these two interviews were recorded in March and November, 2011. The first is with an iconic figure in our industry who has been recognized for untold contributions from the Red Zinger/Coors Classic race series...
