Show #216 – So Long, but not Goodbye

Feb 7th, 2015 | By | Category: Podcasts

After more than nine years of production, Show #216 (released on February 7, 2015) represents the final episode of The FredCast Cycling Podcast, one of the longest-running and most-popular cycling audio podcasts available.

The FredCast was put on permanent hiatus by its host and producer, David Bernstein, so that he could spend more time with his family, on his business, and on his bike.

The FredCast, and its sister show The Spokesmen Cycling Roundtable Podcast, paved the way for other podcasts in the cycling space and we are proud of the work we have done.

We will miss doing the show for you, but we look forward to seeing you out there on the roads, doing what we all love: cycling! Until then… Enjoy the Ride!

Also in this episode, David introduces you to OuterBike in Moab Utah and suggest that this would be a great place to ride the latest and greatest, and we catch up on a recent product recall.
