Bicycle Talk

It’s been a few months, but I was a guest on Episode 35 of Bicycle Talk, the radio show/podcast hosted by Ron Manizza on WHUS in Storrs, Connecticut. Over the last year, I’ve been listening to Ron’s show, and enjoying it.

Last fall, I saw Ron at several cyclocross races, and then again at the Cyclocross National Championships, where he was helping out. Ron has forged his career in the bicycle industry as a bike shop owner, manufacturer’s representative, and race promoter. He has worked tirelessly to introduce people to cycling and make the sport better and stronger. He was “in the right place at the right time” on Day 1 of the “Nats’ when he shot a video of the first lap of the Men’s 40-49 Non-Championship Race. That video went viral. It got more than 155,000 views on Facebook, and was seen countless times on other sites. I was in that race and it will be a memory I hold forever. After Nats, I reached out to him with some ideas for Bicycle Talk. He invited me to come on the show. I accepted the invitation, and had a fun time.

That day, his partner and co-host, Fran Storch, was under the weather, so he was shorthanded in the control room. She normally plays a role in the live production and he had difficulty with the recording. Unfortunately, the first 10 or so minutes of the broadcast were lost. That included my intro and “Ron’s Rant of the Week,” which I did for him. I chose the topic of “training wheels.” He subsequently recorded a “rant” on the same subject, which works. He salvaged the remaining recording and it came out pretty good.

Ron continues to have interesting guests on the show. Bicycle Talk deserves a wider audience. Make sure you check it out!
