Show #315 – October 1, 2016

Guests: Jeremy Powers, Niall Gengler, Charles Coyne

This week we have three guests including the “winningest” American cyclist ever!

With 60 UCI international wins and 4 USA National Cyclocross Championships, Jeremy Powers shares his not-so-secret-secret as well as some tips for anyone aspiring to race a bike. He also tells us about his JAM non-profit organization that is reaching out to promising athletes who might not be able to get in to the sport for a variety of reasons.

I also talk with Charles Coyne about next week’s Recumbent Cycle-Con and Touring Expo at the Sharonville Convention Center in Sharonville, Ohio (just north of Cincinnati).

Charles gives us a glimpse into the who, what , where, and why of the 3-day event that begins on Friday, October 7th with a “trade day” that then opens to the public on Saturday and Sunday.

This year, there are two test track courses – one for 2-wheel recumbents and one for trikes, giving the trikes the room they need to be put to the test.

After a short break for some news, we head to Easthampton, Ma to speak with Niall Gengler from Pioneer Valley Frameworks.

Niall builds some sweet steel bikes and gives us his philosophy about what it takes to get a rider dialed-in for optimum performance and comfort.

It’s a jam-packed show… so let’s get started!
