Bay State Bike Month and Rides Galore: Featuring Galen Mook

Welcome folks to Episode 12! I have a great episode for you folks today. For Bike News, I give some positive infrastructure news and highlight some of the many May rides happening. For Friends on Bikes Eating Dessert, I brought back Yari, to discuss the important topic of how to lead a bike ride, and she'll stay on with me at the end for the game of how to not be "that ride". Finally, our Deeper Look is none other than my former Bike Talk co-host and the Executive Director of MassBike, Galen Mook.Thank you to Yari and Galen for joining me on this episode. The theme and music for this show were created by the amazing Kate Hardly. Her album, West, is available now on her bandcamp page: is produced, hosted, recorded, and edited by me, Laura Jillian, with special guest host Watson the Bike Dog.
