Birkie™ Web Today Episode 10 - December 19, 2010 EPNetwork™

In Episode 10 of Birkie™ Web Today, I interview Dave Mathews, who is a long-time bicyclist and found Nordic skiing as a great winter activity while living in Omaha, Nebraska in 1982. He is an active member of the Kansas City Nordic Ski Club.


Dave Mathews
Dave, who lives in Prairie Village, Kansas which is a suburb of Kansas City, has been bicycling for 35+ years. He has been a long-time member of the Kansas City Bicycle Club, serving as a past club president and chairman of racing. Dave races in several road and cyclo-cross and sometimes mountain biking events each year.


He is a Civil Engineer with the US Army Corps of Engineers and graduated from Iowa State University and the University of California Berkeley with both degrees in civil Engineering. Dave began Nordic skiing while living in Omaha, Nebraska and has completed eight Birkie and two Kortelopet races as well as three City of Lakes Loppett races as a classic skier. He is an active member of the Kansas City Nordic Ski Club.


In the podcast Dave shares his secrets to staying in shape for skiing the Birkie when there is not much on-snow time.  Something many Birkie skiers face.

 Theme Music

Special thanks to fellow Birkie Buddy, Tim Burke for allowing us to use his song, Birkie Strut, as the theme song for the Birkie Web Today Podcast.
