Jeff Cleary - creator of Cleary Bikes - joins us this afternoon to discuss the company's wonderful kids bikes. Far and away one of our favorite products at Interbike this year. A description of what Cleary Bikes is all about:
Cleary Bikes empower kids. A bike launches a little boy or girl into the world. He does not have to be a daredevil. When a kid pushes off on his or her bike, rides to the mailbox, the store, the park or to school, he becomes actively engaged. Not being led by the hand and blazing his own path, is independence!
Riding a bike should be fun. It certainly shouldn’t be stressful or scary. When we created Cleary Bikes we wanted to thrill kids. Riding a Cleary Bike is truly a joyful experience. They roll smoothly, they’re quiet, and they look sleek. We see our bikes as fun tools, not toys. Kids know the difference because the quality that distinguishes our bikes is evident in every facet of their construction. It can be felt in every pedal stroke.
We know these things because we have been riding bikes since we first threw a leg over the banana seat on a second-hand Huffy Dragster. We pedaled on through mountain bikes, road bikes, cross bikes, time trial bikes - and then bikes for our kids. And that's when it became clear the kids needed something better.
Tonight's subjects are Cyclocross and getting started with fitness!!

Sometimes in our fast paced world it’s difficult to imagine our communities of the past. Historian Rui Santos detailed an average trip by horse and carriage from Boston to Plymouth in the 1830s lasting some 10 hours. Fifty years later a new form of transportation would take center stage: the bicycle.
And it was during that time period between 1880 and 1900 that the intersection of race, athleticism and cycling came to mean new forms of freedom and expression.
Lorenz Finison’s remarkable new book, Boston’s Cycling Craze paints the landscape of how a host of visionaries took to the streets and byways … all for the glory of the bicycle. Black, White, Asian and Biracial…they are all in the book and all chronicled in detail during these pioneer years of cycling.
Come explore with us as we turn back the clocks to the golden age of bicycles during and era worth noting in the annuls of American history.
Join Cherise, George and Scott and special guest Rick Phillips, T1D and Rheumatoid Arthritis
In 1974 I was a typical guy; I loved the outdoors, riding bicycles, cars and of course I had an interest in girls. My diagnosis was not at all unexpected. My mother had type 1 diabetes as did her sister who unfortunately died when Mom and she were children. But the truth is; I had lived with diabetes my entire life, first in vitro as my mother had gestational diabetes and then as a child when she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
Then while visiting Disneyworld, I became very ill, was rushed home to Indiana and admitted to the hospital. I had my first insulin injection even before I was admitted. I was released from the hospital on my 17th birthday. I learned two things that week. Illness can happen any time and Disneyworld is not always the happiest place on earth.
For the next 26 years I was reasonably self-sufficient. There were no major illnesses or issues. But then I started to feel awful all of the time and I was having difficulty moving, walking or even sitting. That was when I was introduced to the new world of Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was in the middle of my career and having RA was not a part of my plan.
I worked for 12 more years after diagnosis with RA until I was unable to keep pace and had to find a different purpose in life. So in 2008 I accepted (with great reluctance) disability retirement from my employer.
The truth is often forgotten however. I am first and foremost a husband (Sheryl and I have been married since 1977), a father (2 wonderful sons), and grandfather to 3 of the most charming, intelligent, and awesome grandchildren (I know opinions may vary).
But through it all I still love bicycles, collecting things, laughing a lot (mostly at me), sarcasm, and most importantly having a good time.
