Editor’s Note: We’re pleased to partner with Diane Lees and The Outspoken Podcast to provide another form of relevant, helpful cycling information to our readers. Following is Diane’s intro to this week’s podcast.
When USA Cycling went looking for a new CEO, they recruited a powerhouse in the form of Derek Bouchard-Hall. Derek is a former pro cyclist, has degrees from Harvard, Princeton, and Stanford. He’s worked for Wiggle UK, the world’s largest online cycling retailer, and brings a fresh perspective to what USA Cycling needs as the sport tries to regain some esteem, credibility, and balance. My lengthy interview with Derek covers a wide range of topics and makes for a fascinating conversation. We then lighten it up with two young and enthusiastic cyclists from the Boston Bike Party. Every month, a group of riders invites the community to come and ride – in costume, with music, and ending up with food and drink.

The Outspoken Cyclist podcast is an RBR partner in providing timely, useful and entertaining info “for cyclists, by cyclists.” As a fellow guppy in the big cycling pond, like RBR, The Outspoken Cyclist is independently owned and run by one person, our friend in cycling Diane Lees, who is both the host of the podcast and creator of the HubBub Helmet Mirror (click for Jim Langley’s review).
