8 - Parenting

For this Podcast we’re back at the Blue Spruce Brewing Company, the location for Episode 2's podcast Bikes And…Community.  The story of one man’s quest to recover his stolen Yeti.  Thank you to them as ever.  As a reminder the Blue Spruce Brewery is located at 4151 E County Line Road in Centennial, CO and offers its own ales on tap & classic pub fare, plus open mic & music events.  

Today I’m joined by the Schmidt family, Chris, Jessica and their 8 month old son Carter.  Both Chris and Jessica are avid mountain bikers and balancing that passion with that of being a parent can be a tall order.  They have managed to adjust their lives around the arrival of young Carter and were kind enough to offer to share their experiences, lessons learned and stories about how this adjustment has happened. 

In other words, if they can do it, so can you!

6 - The Velominati

The Velominati, Keepers of the cog, sacred order of the cycling disciple who spend their days committed to poring over the essence of cycling to understand how it makes up the sport’s colourful fabric.  This, they believe is the Velominati's reason to be. 

They are so passionate about these beliefs that they have detailed them in a book called “The Rules” – 95 of them in fact, that talk to the way of the cycling disciple and available on Amazon. 

Some of you may already know about the 5th rule or The Five.  If you don’t know, I suggest you buy the book.
