Podcast 2013 Episode 39 – Monique Hanley Teaches Us How To Change the World

Podcast logo This week we interview one of Dan’s cycling heroes! Monique Hanley joins us to talk about cycling administration and culture change. Monique is on the Executive Board of Cycling Victoria and the Women’s Commission for Cycling Australia, and she’s worked on a lot of significant projects within those roles over the last few years. Her list of achievements are many and yet she’s still gracious, humble and looking ahead to the next challenges. It’s a great interview into a side of the sport that we don’t get to hear all that much about very often. Dan’s especially excited when Monique explains to him how it’s theoretically possible to get himself appointed to all the UCI cycling commissions. It’s a cracking interview, enjoy!
