Have you been thinking about trying a bike to replace some of your car trips or have a friend that you want to encourage? In today’s episode, we are talking with Executive Director of the League of American Bicyclists, Bill Nesper, as we talk about the benefits of biking for transportation, ways to get started and how avid cyclists can help promote the idea of getting on the bike and leaving your car at home.
Today’s episode is sponsored by Kryptonite. For over 45 years, Kryptonite has been your high-quality bike lock provider. One of the most important things about bicycle locks is using them to lock your bike properly! I hear often as a bike shop owner that while a customer used a great bike lock, they didn't lock the right parts of their bike or check what they were locking it to. Kryptonite has a great series of how-to instructions, and tips to help ensure your bike will be where you left it. You can see these tips right on Kryptonite's website visit Kryptonite’s “Proper Bike Locking”.
This episode really covers a wide spectrum of ideas on getting started, places to find help, and how avid cyclists could make a great experience for someone’s initial intro to “going by bike”.
