The Outspoken Cyclist – 5/21/2011

When you really want to know the facts about a subject, who you gonna call? How about a subject matter expert, someone with actual education and experience who can give you the straight-up, no-foolin’, real story?
This week on the show we have two such experts, one in the area of health, fitness and wellness, and the other in the area of bicycle law.
First up is Barbara Bushman, Ph.D., FACSM, who has just finished editing a new book for the American College of Sports Medicine entitled The Complete Guide to Fitness and Health. Listen as Dr. Bushman discusses her refreshingly comprehensive approach to eating, exercise and lifestyle with a focus on being functionally fit for life.
And in the second half of the show, we talk with attorney Steve Magas, who practices law in Cincinnati, Ohio. Magas has been involved in over 200 bicycle-related cases during his nearly 30-year legal career. He’ll share his experiences, as well as some preliminary results from research he’s done on bicycle fatalities in Ohio during the past six years.
All this plus a bit of news, calendar, and moaning about the rainy weather (which apparently worked, since it’s sunny and 75 in northeast Ohio as I write this).
