Padraig Interviewed on The Outspoken Cyclist!


I took some time out from my visit to the Sea Otter Classic last week to speak with Diane Lees of The Outspoken Cyclist radio show. It was a chance to discuss the implications of the Boston Marathon bombing for cycling as well as (much more pleasant) spend a bit of time promoting the Kickstarter project for my book “Why We Ride.”

Most of the world’s cyclists don’t actually live within the broadcast range of Cleveland’s WJCU, but that doesn’t mean you can’t hear the show. Diane’s a delight to talk to and this particular episode serves up the Bike Snob as well, who was promoting his new book, “Bike Snob Abroad,” which I look forward to reading.

You can check out the podcast here.

BTW: The Kickstarter campaign is doing well and as of this writing has just passed the $17,000 mark with six days to go. I’ve put some great rewards together and if you haven’t checked the project out, I encourage you to drop by. I hope (and suspect) that you’ll find at least one of them appealing.

The Kickstarter is here. Drop by before time runs out!

    Let’s kick this project over the goal line! 🙂

    Thanks for being a guest on the show. It is ALWAYS a pleasure to speak with you.

    Your Peloton “manifesto” edition was the single best cycling magazine ever produced. I’ve lent out that magazine so many times I’ve lost track of it (if anyone reading this has it, give it back please). I’m gonna have to Kickstart in order to get that piece of writing and photography back. Totally worth it.

      Full Monte: Thanks much for that. I had so much fun writing that. As I was working on it I told friends that I was “off leash.” Let’s hope I make that first stretch goal, otherwise I won’t be able to include it. In the meantime, Peloton does sell back issues.
