Great Stuff

Loving the podcast so far. Good guests and a good range of topics thus far. Would love to see some 25-35 min podcasts in the future as my (bike) commute to work is that long.

Easily Digestable

Short easy to digest episodes. Approachable and informative for outsiders but still enjoyable for more seasoned riders.

Doing good

This is a really good podcast if u have a short commute to work. It's worth a listen whether your a bike novice or experienced. Best episodes involve unofficial co-host Eli
