Season 1 Episode 44:

Boom! Here it is folks, our first repeat podcast guest, and our first episode that also features a video version.


Show Notes:

We’re delighted to welcome back a good friend to the Active Towns, Mr. Ryan Van Duzer, to talk about his recent bikepacking adventures and help us launch our video podcast. That’s right! We will now feature a video version of a select number of our future episodes that will really benefit from having a visual component. Ryan is the perfect guest for our first video episode because of all his vibrant imagery that he produces on his DuzerTV YouTube channel.
