This month the Bike Show explores the life cycle of Cyclocross in the United States. From the birth of cyclocross in the 70's, we speak with Laurence Malone-- a.k.a. The Godfather of Cyclocross racing-- about the sport's humble origins in the us and what it was like to be the lone American on the starting line overseas in the early years.

We're also be joined by current pro Ryan Trebon of the Cannondale Cyclocross World Team and recently retired and 2013 Cyclocross World Masters Champion Sue Butler about how the sport of 'cross has (or hasn't) grown in the ensuing years.

Activism for our Streets

 Listen to the show (mp3, 25.5MB)

This month we go back to our roots-- grass roots that is. Portland's flame of cycling activism burned out over the recession. But recently, out of the ashes comes new, exciting growth. Tori and Chris talk with Alex Reed of Bike Loud Portland, Lisa White of Bike-Walk-Vote and Boris Kaganovich of Better Block PDX. These passionate and motivated average-citizens are shaping the way your city streets look with an energy and enthusiasm not seen since we ripped out a highway and replaced it with a park.
