LeMond on Bicycling for Transportation, Fun

Mike Zingaro, Greg LeMond and Raphael Clemente (SFBC Board Member)

Last week, the enigmatic Greg LeMond came to South Florida to speak at the Wolfsonian’s Speed Limits exhibit. He spoke on the perceived barriers he broke as a professional cyclist and Tour de France champion, the historical context in which Americans’ quest for speed made the bicycle the world’s top sport and attraction. Fans and art lovers asked him questions about his story, specific race experiences and success in marketing everything from sunglasses to helmets to pedals. We asked him something different – What does Greg LeMond think about the bicycle as a way to get around town, a way to meet people and just spend time, that seems to be exploding in popularity here and around the country?

Thanks to Peter Schuetz for recording Greg’s answer:

Also, congratulations to Loren Blandon for winning seats from the Bike Coalition! We know many of you were unable to get tickets for the event. If you have a question for Greg, post it here in the comments. We are talking to him about doing another public appearance in Miami and want to show him your support. Thanks.
