E336 – Puddlecycle 2016-17!

Today we have Tom McTighe and Tom Howe of Puddlecycle in studio to detail what it’s like to lead people through a wet or cold season of bike fun. Also, Paula Funatake of Funatake Cycle Craft was this year’s guest host winner at Cranksgiving 2016 and steps in to ask a few questions of the Puddcycle crew.

Also: Brock & Aaron discuss cold weather camping and choking on tapioca pearls, amongst other things.
