#WeRideWhyRadio is a bi-weekly audio magazine, hosted by Greg Roth & Davide ”The Rocket” Richter launched on Friday, October 23, 2020
#WeRideWhy? There are many answers to that question many ride for a myriad of reasons.
Of course, cycling is a lifestyle as well. The aesthetic is as important as the functionality when it comes to bikes, kits, styles whatever. Music and art are part of our culture, because cycling is an art-form.
Bikes are pieces of art. Like every human being, every bike no matter how old or what style is beautiful and magnificent.
Cycling has altered our lives in a positive way and continues to.We bring what we learn into other areas and share the experience with others.
This inspires people to take action whatever that action is, to new possibilities and ways of being...living our live to the fullest and having communities’ function.
Greg and David will chat with interesting guests from the music, art, cycling and athletic world - to delve into the intricate and interesting perspectives on training, living, overcoming obstacles, fulfilling on commitments and having success (in whatever way you define it) in life.
We look forward to riding with you on this journey and thank you for listening!
