Cycling in Paris: Past & Present w/ Mark Cramer

Show Notes:To say that Mark Cramer is an accidental bike advocate would be quite an understatement. He describes how many years ago he happened upon a fun group of cyclists completely taking over the streets of Paris, with the support and assistance of the police, and how this chance connection led him down the road of becoming a regular bike commuter, traveling throughout the Paris region. Now that he's retired he has taken up exploring by his beloved green bike and reflecting on how profound an impact riding has had on his life, health, and wellbeing.
