  1. Great podcast. Just one comment, a tangent – no real car racing fans watch car racing to see accidents either. Whoever says they do aren’t real racing fans. I’ve been an F1 fan for years, and while spectacular crashes can be entertaining once it’s ascertained that no one is hurt, I never want then, I never watch to see them, and I don’t think any real fans do either.

    But you’re right that it’s harder to accept in cycling where the risks are seemingly less likely to lead to death on a bike ride, even a race. But then again, race cars shield and protect the driver, and take the impact and absorb the shock for them. Bikers have themselves, their helmets, and the pavement, nothing else. Bike helmets can only do so much when the speeds are high enough and the impacts are great enough.

  2. I loved your review of your LA rides. As a youth living in Redondo Beach, I received 2 tickets for not walking my walk bike on the Redondo Beach Pier.
