E345 – Megan Ramey from Bikabout



 

Megan Ramey had a vision to simplify the good trip.  Why fret over car rentals, unfamiliar expressways with angry drivers, and spend half of your time dreading the drives to come when you could explore cities the way they are best experienced – by bike?  She and her family have been living the dream for some time, guiding others into relaxing, human-scaled city tours with their travel guides, and getting there in style on Amtrak.  We get the skinny on Bikabout.

E314 – Dr. David Howell Thinks While He Rides



Dr. David Howell teaches ethics in Wisconsin, and needed time to work out a “problem of scale” (i.e. a big conundrum).  What better way to get some time to think and write than to ride your bicycle from Washington state back to home?  He authored the book “The Descent Into Happiness” while riding across vast, beautiful, empty landscapes that gave him the space he needed to ride more slowly, think deeper thoughts, and enjoy a few beers along the way.  We dig in for the deep stuff!  Oh, did we mention he’s a listener, too?  He kindly name-checks the podcast in the book!

Adele drops in as a fan of the book to fill in as cohost in Aaron’s absence, and shares a few experiences from her recent solo double century tour.
