A look back on a weekend overnight in triple digit heat, plus my top hot weather bike touring tips. Originally podcast July 27, 2017.
This episode we talk about bicycle touring music. It’s such a personal thing, music… but we thought we’d take the time to chat about musical tastes, its role in our bike tours, and then build a cool Spotify playlist for your next tour, or to inspire you to build a new one for yourself. This special mega-sized pod features our friends from the Land of Sunshine and Bunnies™️, Brock Dittus and Aaron Flores of The Sprocket Podcast. Originally podcast March 3, 2016.
