Let's talk running! We sit down to chat with The Corners Run Crew organizer, Colin Strickland. Colin and Cody chat about the crew's goals and what it means to run at your own pace. Colin also shares his thoughts on how running helps him and his "run-mates" well-being. With everything going on in the world, and many of us continue to face restrictions due to COVID-19, getting out for a walk, jog or run could be just what we need.

Episode 100 Special: Justin Williams on signing with Red Bull (with Colin Strickland)
The Adventure Stache
In this very special one hundredth episode, Payson, Justin, and Colin are reunited nearly a year after their first conversation on the show. They talk about their plan to revolutionize American cycling, and, of course, the moment that Payson, Colin, and Kate Courtney got to present Justin with his Red Bull helmet (a day that featured celebrity cameos from Reggie Miller and Chris Froome). This full interview can be viewed as a film on YouTube beginning tomorrow, and includes footage from Justin's helmet presentation and more.
Dirty Kanza with Colin Strickland and Amity Rockwell
Breakfast With Boz Presented by Wahoo
Dirty Kanza is the crown jewel of gravel. In this episode, we are joined by the 2019 winners Amity Rockwell, Colin Strickland, and my good friend Marshall Opel. The event has been postponed from the original May 30th date, yet the excitement and legend of the event live on.
Justin Williams, road cyclist (with Colin Strickland and Kate Courtney)
The Adventure Stache
Justin Williams is a professional cyclist who has raced both domestically and internationally. He’s won multiple national titles, including both the road and criterium races at the Elite National Championships in 2018. As one of the small number of professional cyclists of color, Justin has chosen to prioritize inclusivity and representation in a sport that still lacks diversity. In 2019, he and his brother and fellow racer Cory Williams founded their own team, Legion of Los Angeles, which seeks to elevate the careers of cyclists from diverse backgrounds. Payson caught up with Justin on a recent trip to Los Angeles, where they were joined by racers and former Adventure Stache guests Kate Courtney (Ep. 5) and Colin Strickland (Ep. 31). The conversation was free flowing and off script, with Kate and Colin jumping in to ask Justin questions, and Justin turning the tables with some questions of his own. They talk about how all four of them have found their own unique space within the vast world of cycling, why representation matters, what Justin and his team are doing to increase female participation and equal pay, and when to say “hell no” to sponsorship deals. Justin also shares his first run-in with Colin’s particular set of racing skills, and Colin explains why his winning strategy has more to do with perspective and analysis than it does with fitness. Kate shares her thoughts on the dangers of equating amateur athletes with pros, and Payson, Justin, and Colin settle the great Aero Bars debate once and for all.
Colin Strickland Also able to connect with Colin Strickland while out in California for the BWR Survival camp. As with Pete, and the burgeoning alternative racing scene (gravel, fixed gear, etc events) there is much to hear and see about what Colin is up to, and has accomplished. As well as the different path taken to get there. We chat a bit of his background growing up, his education, work life, as well his long history on the bike and now starting to carve out the time for bikes. Paving his own way and connecting with sponsors that truly support him financially to do the work and create the story he’s telling. Also, with his degree in environmental sciences, we discuss this further and using the bike for change. In addition, I ask him just what story he’d like to tell with the spotlight and focus upon him now. Follow Colin and his year in the links below. Or, simply google him - and you’ll find plenty 😂Best of luck to clim, keep paving the way.

On this week's episode of The VeloNews Podcast we sit down with Dirty Kanza winner Colin Strickland at his local coffee shop in Austin, Texas. Strickland takes us into a deep dive into his background in cycling, and explains why he declined a spot with EF Pro Cycling for the 2020 season. Strickland also discusses his hopes for the gravel racing scene, and why it should steer clear of the various models and attitudes that have shaped competitive road cycling. First, however, we catch up with VeloNews reporter Andrew Hood who is on the ground at the Tour Down Under. Hood is chasing the big stories at the race. Ruth Winder won the women's race in thrilling fashion, and the top sprinters are already collecting big wins. Hood also discusses Rohan Dennis's debut in the colors of Team Ineos. Hood was at the Ineos team bus when Dennis spoke to reporters about his controversial decision to exit the 2019 Tour de France early. All that and more on this week's episode of The VeloNews Podcast.
Colin Strickland is a gravel, cyclocross, and road cyclist who shot to prominence in 2016 when he dominated the 2016 Red Hook Criterium fixed-gear series in Brooklyn. Since then, he’s won back-to-back titles at Gravel Worlds and taken the win at this year’s Dirty Kanza 200, becoming the first person to finish the race in under ten hours. Payson caught up with Colin in San Francisco last month, the morning after they competed in Red Bull Bay Climb, to discuss his achievements and varied career. They talk about their love of off the bike tinkering, their experiences attending the same tiny private school in Austin, TX from kindergarten through high school, and Colin’s unconventional Dirty Kanza strategy that baffled his competitors and brought him a decisive victory.
