We visited with a true living legend at his home/bicycle museum in Golden, Colorado. Steve Stevens who you will soon hear about, shattered the world record for his year 2000 solo crossing of the US on a HiWheel bicycle. From the 19th century, his machine not only does not have gears but he was unable to coast any measure of that epic ride. Besides our discussion of that ride and his other HiWheel exploits, we also talk about the journey he was planning from England to Iran and then rode until a war in the Mideast forced him to stop.
