The Outspoken Cyclist – A Podcast For Cyclists By Cyclists

with 2 comments


I have a new podcast on my favorites list called The Outspoken Cyclist. Based at radio station WJCU in Cleveland, Ohio, it’s a show produced by cyclists, for cyclists.

The weekly show covers a wide range of bike topics, from advocacy, news and events to sports and fitness. Hosts, Diane Lees and Greg Priddy, do a great job keeping those topics relevant and captivating as they bring on many interesting guests and share some really good discussions.

They’ve just released their 134th show, so I haven’t been able to review them all. Even though I’ve only listened to the latest ones made for 2013, and I’ve already been exposed to some cool, new (to me) bike stuff.

Sure, because they cover such a wide range of subjects, you run the risk of coming across a show that is less entertaining than others. Since I’m not into sports cycling, I personally found the sports and fitness topics a bit unexciting – but, I can see how others would find them engaging. The great thing about a podcast, is that you can be selective with what you listen to and fast forward through the rest.

Overall, the podcast is a nice way to geek-out about bikes, even while you’re commuting by car.

My only question is, why haven’t I heard of this show before? According to their Facebook page, they have over 1,100 fans – but only one of them is a mutual ‘Friend’. Perhaps I can change that. I’m hoping that if you haven’t already heard about the show, you’ll go check them out:

  1. I’ve been listening to Diane Lees since before she had The Outspoken Cyclist on WJCU. I enjoy her talks, and she has interesting guests too.

    Glad you found them!
