    Ep 79 – How Can We Safely Run Trail Days in a COVID-19 World?

We’re joined by: Susie Murphy, Executive Director of the San Diego Mountain Biking Association, Patrick Lucas of the BC Aboriginal Youth Mountain Biking Project and Jay Darby, Fields Program Coordinator with IMBA Canada.

    We dive back into the old topic of eMTBs with a fresh perspective: Joe Vadeboncoeur, President of the Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Association discusses his article: “eMTB Thoughts”. Prior to being Board President, Joe worked in the Bike Industry at Trek, and he shares what it was like going from there into the world of advocacy.

My favourite podcast

Brett provides great insight on a wide variety of topics pertinent to the world of trail organizations.

DigToRide ,

Informative

Great variety of guests, and many topics aren't always discussed in the MTB world. It's nice to see the focus put on trails and the community.

Cristynicolle ,

Episode 4

This podcast keeps getting better with each thought provoking topic! As someone that doesn't mountain bike, I am blown away at how inclusive and welcoming the mountain bike community is. My family has a home not far from Boothroyd, I was pleasantly surprised to hear about the things that are going on in the little community I used to visit as a child.
