The Journal: Bike Touring with Baby on Board

On this episode we chat with Adele and Brock Dittus, whom you’ve heard on the show before! This is the adventurousy outdoorsy couple that have let us learn all about their past bike tours. You may also know Brock from back episodes of The Sprocket Podcast where he’s the current producer and host emeritus.
But here’s the thing… they had a son recently! And that kind of changed a lot of things, but they didn’t let it stop them from slapping a helmet on him and taking him out on a super bikey adventure. I think this is a trip that will get you parental types stoked to get your kids to join you on tour. Tons of great advice from Adele and Brock on this one!

You’ve been hearing about Jason Kent and his music for many fine episodes. Sunfields’ latest album may be their best yet. Go get it.
