    Ep. 128 James Longhurst; Author of BIKE BATTLES; A History of Sharing the American Road

    Several months ago I got an email from a guy in Lacross Wisconsin - James Longhurst. He asked if I’d like to read his book on the history of bicycles sharing the American road. It's called Bike Battles. Recently, he was kind enough to carve out some time during finals week at UW-LaCross, to discuss his book Bike Battles: A History of Sharing The American Road. Thanks to James for sharing his book with us today - I really enjoyed it - and I also really enjoyed diving deeper into it with James - and I would encourage you to as well! It’s available at the University of Washington Press at www.washington.edu/uspress If you have any interest in the history of the bike in America - this is a great book!

    Ep. 126 Mother's Day Spectacular with Marisa Boaz, Deanne Herr, Dee Mable and hosted by Lisa Carponelli

    While we should be celebrating moms 365.25 days per year, we do have one day we set aside to really recognize how awesome moms are. And cycling moms - they're like regular moms, only better! So what better than to, not only invite some awesome cyclists who are also awesome moms, but also invite another awesome mom cyclist and journalist to lead the discussion? What we've got here is gravel pro Marisa Boaz, ultra cyclist Deanne Herr and my own partner in this game of life, Dee Mable all together with the interview being led by a talented cyclist, mom and local news anchor (She's a pretty big deal) Lisa Carponelli. It was an honor to be in the room with the four of them! I really just tried to shut up and listen (but they did pull me into the conversation now and again!). I'd also like to thank Velorosa Women's Cycling Clothing for offering a quiet place for us to meet.

    Ep. 125 Matt Zimmer shares his thoughts on the state of road racing in the U.S.

    Matt Zimmer, Project Echelon rider for a good many years and I wanted to get his opinion on the state of road racing in the U.S. We met for a beer on the patio of a lovely local brewery: (Either Or - It's actually a restaurant and nice bar - but it's owned by the people who own a local brewery: Lua - so I call it a brewery... I guess it's Either a restaurant Or a brewery.... the name says it all). Anyway - Matt and I had a great conversation about bikes - we hope you enjoy!

    Ep. 124 Jason Strohbehn: Gravel Worlds First 2 Last Initiative

    In it's 15 years, the Garmin Gravel Worlds has become one of the biggest gravel events on the U.S. calendar. Boasting a heritage of champions that range from Trans-Iowa alumni to World Tour cyclists - and all without huge prize purses - until now. Recently, a $30,000 prize purse was announced for the elite mens and women's races - but along with that, they will also be donating another $30,000 to charities AND have welcomed Hannah Shell into the Gravel Family in an initiative to celebrate the back of the pack, as much as the front in their new F2L (First to Last) program. I invited Jason on, not only to talk about their exciting news, but also the continuing evolution of the sport of gravel cycling.
