Show #405 – June 16, 2018

Jun 16, 2018 by

Guests: Keith Oberg, Mike Sule

It’s advocacy all the way down.

Bikes for the World‘s Keith Oberg goes back to the beginning of the organization’s founding and takes us through the process that has delivered 140,000 bikes around the globe, creating job, getting kids to school, delivering much needed health care, and taking care of the environment in the process.

Then, Mile Sule, Executive Director of Asheville on Bikes in Asheville, NC, explains “tactical urbanism” and the project that will help to determine how a street in the city will transformed to accommodate ALL traffic.

I also begin the show with a “commentary” on why some of the old, venerable bike rides are losing attendance and what we might be able to do to revive cycling culture for a younger generation.

    Nothing to do with this episode, but after listening to this, I’d never buy a used carbon bike. https://youtu.be/EZbg5hCRyvs

      Yeah… it’s not usually a comment I would make. And, carbon fiber has its place. It’s just not necessarily “everywhere”! Thanks for listening and thanks for commenting.
