Podcast: Pedal Hub, episode 2

Fat bikes
Fat bikes get their name for the over-sized tires the bikes employ to ride over snow, sand and other difficult terrain.

In this installment, the Pedal Hubbers reflect on a slightly existential question, "why do you ride?"

Maybe it's for economic, environmental or health reasons. It might be because of the freedom biking offers or the opportunity for adventure. But it's worth thinking about.

Also, the team discusses the history of how Minneapolis became a biking mecca, and what it can do to become even more awesome.

Plus, Amber recently bought a cargo bike. It's kind of the Ford-150 of bicycles and it's changed Amber's life. We'll find out how and why.
