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. And when we spoke, he talked about all the things he’d done including being the head roadie for Aerosmith and building some crazy thing for Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, burying a whole titanium frame in the walls of...

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.

But still, a day of accumulating snow sandwiched between two stretches of sunny and 60+ degrees in early November is wacky, even for northeast Ohio. Happily, The Outspoken Cyclist is a constant, calming companion for your brain, no matter what the thermometer reads. Our first guest is an icon, not only in cycling, but in several other fields, including rock and roll, and transportation planning. Gary Helfrich was one of the forces behind the original incarnation of Merlin, went on the road with Aerosmith, and is now the...
