E328 – Kyle Heddy: Unracer & Unadventurer



Kyle Heddy likes going outdoors, but don’t call him an adventurer.  He likes cyclocross but don’t call him a racer.  What do you call it when people just do cool things? We chat about it all and hear some kickass stories of outdoorsmanship and the crucible of experience that friends can go through.
