I’m Diane Jenks, the host and producer of The Outspoken Cyclist Podcast—one of the longest running and most popular bicycling podcasts in the industry. To date, there are over 500 weekly episodes with over 2,000 interviews. spanning over nine years. Topics range from advocacy and legislation to competition, books reviews, and—well, just about any topic that relates to the bicycle. I was an independent bike shop owner from 1974 through 2012, the last 15 years of which my store fit, designed, and built custom bicycles only. I’ve been a ride and race director, producing biathlons and a half-iron man triathlon. I have written for both trade and consumer publications. I ride a custom Bushnell tandem with my bicycle engineer husband Brian and we have two fabulous dogs.
