Riding bikes is about the journey, not the destination
What is it?
Bringing human stories and humanity back to the conversations around bicycles. Learn how the news effects our day-to-day lives, hear stories from new riders, and dig in deep with a diverse coalition of folks that make bikes better for all humans. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry, and we’ll eat lots of snacks.
Why is it?
The Randonnista Podcast has been a long-time coming. Inspired from guest-hosting on Bike Talk, I have been discussing making my own audio content for years, and now it has finally arrived! Bike Talk was the proof point that I will never tire of talking about bikes.
However, while bikes for bikes sake is fun, I also wanted to use this platform as a means to spread the word on what my favorite advocates and bike friends are doing in and around Boston to improve biking for everyone. And bring in their whole, dynamic human-selves. We often get labeled as “bike people” but many of us have interests beyond just biking (sacrilege, I know!).
In my conversations you’ll get to hear from a wide-range of bike people all tackling different areas of biking and learn about the human’s behind those stories and what drives them.
Hey Folks – today is a very short holiday episode. We'll start with how to fight back against the overturning of Roe V. Wade, then finish off with some amazing clips of riders telling me what biking means to them. This seemed like a great show for July 4th as most of the responses are centered around the freedom of the bicycle.
