    • Places & Travel

In this episode of the 10 Adventures podcast, we enter into the world of cycling with Peter Flax, the former editor in chief of Bicycling Magazine, Runners World, and Backpacker, and the author of the inspiring new book, "Live to Ride." Peter shares his lifelong passion for cycling, from commuting over 40,000 miles to exploring the globe on two wheels. We discuss the profound, almost meditative connection that cycling fosters, whether it’s through a morning commute or a challenging mountain ascent.
 
In this podcast we explore the therapeutic benefits of cycling, the joy of discovering new places, and the transformative impact of e-bikes. We touch on the evolving culture of cycling, the importance of inclusivity, and how urban infrastructure can shape the future of cycling in North America. Peter also shares fascinating stories from his book, including the inspiring history of pioneering female cyclists in the 1890s.
