    All-Season Adventures with Doug Dunlop

    All-Season Adventures with Doug Dunlop

    Doug Dunlop joins me for the final episode of the spring. Many of you may know him from his blog and social media presence where he shares his experiences biking, camping, and adventuring year round in Calgary, Alberta. I hope the episode inspires you and your family take an adventure by bike this summer (or make plans for next winter!). Here are the links we mentioned:

I hope to be back in the fall or the new year, but for now I am going to take a step back from the podcast to focus on other creative projects and to enjoy the summer with my family. A huge thank you to everyone who has listened, shared, and supported Family Pedals over the last year.
    When I came up with the concept, I wasn’t sure who would listen or if it would resonate with other families; it has turned out to be such a rewarding endeavor. I have loved connecting with both guests and listeners who are passionate or curious about active transportation, biking, and getting outside with their families. Listeners, thank you for being a part of this. It wouldn’t be what it is without you.
    If you'd like to be in the loop when new episodes air, be sure to subscribe so you'll see it in your feed and can jump back in to these conversations. Until then, may you have many adventures biking with your family.

    Bunch Bikes with Aaron Powell

    Bunch Bikes with Aaron Powell

    Aaron Powell is the owner of Bunch Bikes, formerly known as Urban Tribe Cargo Bicycles. We first chatted in late February, but I held off on releasing the episode until now so he could share the new company name and the reasons behind rebranding. I love that Aaron saw a need for a different type of bike in the American market and went out and created a company to fill that need. You’ll hear how he started biking for transportation, the inspiration behind the company, and where he sees Bunch Bikes fitting into the cargo biking landscape. The new website will be up by the end of the week, but until then you can check out Urban Tribe Cargo Bicycles to find out more about the bikes and company. Other links mentioned:

    Babes with Babes on Bikes with Leslie Lilly

    Babes with Babes on Bikes with Leslie Lilly

    Today I’m welcoming my friend Leslie Lilly to the show. She and I met through a group she created in Austin: Babes with Babes on Bikes. Every week, the group would ride to park or other kid-friendly attraction. It was a great way to explore the city and meet other like-minded families. You’ll also hear about her family’s experience spending a year living on the road, exploring the States by bike. If you’re like me, by the end you’ll want to pack up your gear and go on your own cycling adventure.

    Cargo Bike Republic with Kerry Waldman

    Kerry Waldman has been riding and working on bikes for most of his life, and now shares that passion with his daughter through their cargo biking adventures. Last year Kerry created the Cargo Bike Republic Facebook group--a judgement free place to ask questions and share inspiration about family biking. It's a group for everyone in the cargo biking community--the families who ride them, the companies that create them, and the mechanics who work on them. In this episode you'll hear some of Kerry's biking story as well as the inspiration, mission, and evolution of Cargo Bike Republic group.
