The Better with Bikes Podcast launched last week. It’s Trek’s first branded podcast. Though all episodes circle around the theme of cycling, each episode delivers a unique experience. Meaning, there’s a hidden gem of information for every listener, whether they are avid riders or not. The last cycling related podcast I heard was about a bikepacker rescue in Oregon.
Better with Bikes showcases how people from different backgrounds and experiences are using the shared passion of cycling to make a difference, but you don’t have to be an avid rider to find something interesting within each episode.
I appreciate the generally entertaining approach.
In an episode, Trek Vice President, Mark Joslyn sits down with a football and baseball All-Star that turned to cycling in 2011 as a way to help pull his community together. Another episode takes a different perspective, diving into the background of a former Trek team member and how his unconventional childhood in East Germany ultimately impacted his future cycling career.
Topics including diversity, equality and eco-sustainability are also among the conversations had that provide insight into the ways cycling is impacting riders, and riders are working to help make a change within the sport in turn.
