E380 – Robert Rides Recumbent Relentlessly



In the studio today we have Robert Weaver who rode his recumbent bike across the land.  He gives us the lowdown on being closer to the ground, and what he learned as he crossed the continent!  We’re glad he got in touch on his way to the west coast.  Follow Robert at whatifitspossiblenow.com

As always, Thank you to our drink sponsor The Beer Mongers for providing libations and to all of our Patreon donors who keep us going.
