A discussion on the rise of bike commuters (plus a MasiGuy update)

by Commute by Bike

For those that don’t know, I’m a semi-regular on the audio podcast, The Spokesmen.  We recorded episode #30 this morning and it’s now online for your listening pleasure.  If you’d like to hear me do a bit of a rant on the state of the industry, then make sure you go download.

Another Spokesmen regular is the MasiGuy, Tim Jackson, who recently got wrecked in a track race.  He was back on the show this morning and gave a report of his injuries and how it all went down.  (spoiler.  he’s gonna live)

If you liked the podcast, you’ll love the video roundtable I hosted at Interbike this last year.

    Thanks for pointing me to ‘The Spokesman’ I listened to #30 and I’m 100% with the wear a helmet thing. I’ve had many crashes over years and know it can happen anytime, anywhere.. Plus, wearing a helmet sets a good example for my kids. My 3 year old loves his helmet. I hope that sticks.

    Hearing the details of Tim’s crash made me hurt just thinking about it and having kids I really felt for his daughter. I cannot imagine how that affected her.

    Also, it’s interesting to hear about CBB stats going up recently. I’m part of the the Commuting 101 stats. ;) I’ve really been putting in an effort to commute, but my commute is 26 miles round trip and the afternoon costal winds really work my legs. I plan to ramp up when my fitness level allows more effort.

    Thanks!
    AC
