ABOUT THE EPISODE

THIS EPISODE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY JENSONUSA

Guitar Ted sits down with Marty Larson from The Heywood at Impact Coffee Bar in Decorah, Iowa to discuss The Heywood, which is planned for May 16, 2020. Listen in as they chat all about the ride, the area, and why you should head over to Northfield in May. 

What is The Heywood? “The Heywood is a gravel road ride taking place in the rolling countryside south of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro plex. We call it Deep South Metro. You may know it as Northfield. Northfield is a college town of approximately 20,000 people. We have a thriving downtown with cafés, bakeries, and lots of stores with actual personality.

Rather hang out in the woods? We’ve got that covered too. Nerstrand State Park and Caron Park are a ten-minute drive from our start line. Both are on route even! In other words, bring your family! There’s lots to do.”

ABOUT THE EPISODE

Bobby Wintle is co-owner of District Bicycles in Stillwater, Oklahoma and the main instigator at the Land Run 100. He was out at Sea Otter doing some work, having some fun, and spreading his endless energy. He sat down with Ben and chatted about life out in the Tour Divide, giving hugs at the Land Run, owning a bike shop, and more. Be sure to mark your calendars for March 15-16, 2019.

About the Land Run 100:

“These roads have a depth of history, and a soul. They are unique, unforgiving, ever-changing, but always red. On April 22, 1889, cannon-fire signaled the beginning of the first Land Run in Stillwater, OK, the home and start/finish line of the Land Run 100. At the heart of this event are some of the most rugged and daunting, beautiful and memorable roads in the Oklahoma country. They take on a personality of their own. But they are also marked by the people who travel far and work hard to ride them. Making yourself a part of these roads makes them a part of you.”

ABOUT THE EPISODE

Erik de Brun is one of the co-owners of Redshift Sports. He took some time while at Sea Otter to chat with Ben Redshift as a company, the products, his background, pole vaulting, and more.

About Redshift Sports:

"Redshift Sports was founded in 2013 by Stephen, Erik, and Scott with the goal of making components that help cyclists and triathletes ride further, faster, and more comfortably on the bikes they already own.  We are a small group of mechanical engineers who happen to be avid (if somewhat average) cyclists and triathletes.

Prior to founding Redshift Sports, we managed (and still manage) Ripple Design LLC, an engineering consulting and product design firm in Philadelphia.  Ripple Design works on a wide range of products, from medical devices to large-scale landmine clearance equipment.  We drew on this extensive design, prototyping and manufacturing experience to bring our first product - the Switch Aero System - to market.

In June 2013, we launched the Switch Aero System on Kickstarter, a crowd-funding platform that lets independent backers jump-start small businesses and projects.  The response was overwhelming - people loved the idea of maximizing the versatility of their existing road bikes.  We raised 2.5 times our original funding goal, which allowed us to bring the system to market.  We can't thank our Kickstarter backers enough - none of this would have been possible without their support!  You can check out the original Kickstarter video below - the system has evolved a lot since those first prototype units!

In late 2015, we launched our second product - the ShockStop - on Kickstarter. The response was again fantastic and with our backers help we were able to bring the ShockStop to market in 2016."

ABOUT THE EPISODE

Jim Cummins and LeLan Dains of the popular Dirty Kanza were out at the Sea Otter Classic recently.

The Dirty Kanza mission:
The mission of the Dirty Kanza 200 is to provide the ultra-endurance cycling community with a high quality event at an exceptional value. The event will be structured in such a way to be extremely challenging, but at the same time possible to complete. We will strive to effectively utilize the ruggedness and remoteness of the Flint Hills region to properly challenge the self-sufficiency of event participants, while at the same time provide an appropriate level of support, to ensure an enjoyable, life-enriching cycling experience.
