This week Kyle reaches beyond the bicycle world for an interview with Tim Riecker, project manager and principal consultant with Emergency Preparedness Solutions (www.epsllc.biz) - a firm specializing in comprehensive emergency management planning. Tim has over two decades of experience in public safety, including local emergency response as a chief officer, state-level emergency management as a senior manager, and public safety consulting across the nation. Kyle and Tim dig into the details of how communities prepare for emergencies, the importance of robust transportation systems in emergency considerations, and the role bicycles can play in the event of an emergency. Touch base with the Bike Nerds on Twitter, Facebook, or email to leave your feedback. Even better - leave a review on iTunes! The Bike Nerds Podcast is sponsored Bike Fixation. Community demonstrations and temporary pop-up bike lanes just got a little bit more fun, inspiring and safe with Bike Fixation's new Wave Delineators. These wavey lane delineators have been part of pilot programs across the country, and now they're available to anyone or any group interested. Learn more at bikefixation.com.
