A full platter is on for Stage 5 as Guy & I are very happy to start off this podcast with topics close to us here in Vancouver & Victoria.
First off, we ride into Vancouver's famous coffee cycling emporium, Musette Caffe. Why? We talk about our first encounter, earlier this week, with Jonathan Schneider, co-founder of Road Holland: Serious Stylish Cycling Wear. We're very excited to finally meet Jonathan, our sponsor, and we had a hearty discussion on branding and where Road Holland can fit in the cycling obsessed Lower Mainland. And, we're proudly sporting our Road Holland jerseys.
From our new sponsors, McGann Publishing, Guy reviews; The Story of the Giro d'Italia-A Year-by-Year History of the Tour of Italy: Volume Two 1971-2011 by Bill & Carol McGann. We also have on hand, Paved Magazine's Spring's edition, another fine issue centering on the blue-collar racing in America with striking images from 1,500 feet above the Tour Down Under.
