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!
Diane Lees owns a bike shop, teaches yoga, hosts a radio show and still finds time to ride her bike. I think she put her watch in a trash compactor. I’ve known her since the days of Asphalt and my every interaction with her has been a delight.
She interviewed me for her radio show, “The Outspoken Cyclist,” this week. The show will be on WJCU 88.7 FM live (in Cleveland) at 5:30 (that’s Easter Standard Time). You can live stream the show or wait until 6:00 and then download the podcast. We had a great time talking and I’m hoping that unless you meet me in person it’ll be the first and last time you hear my voice (why is it we hate the sound of our own voice?).
