Episode 167 - "What it feels like to bicycle in 100+ mph winds" Host: Kyle Munson
Bicyclist Kevin Nicholson checked the weather before he left home, but Alexa apparently had no clue. The Iowan's routine bike ride in central Iowa on this fateful morning in August left him in the middle of an historic storm--a derecho, or inland hurricane, with winds of more than 100 miles per hour that flattened corn fields, peeled roofs off houses and toppled trees. Co-host Kyle Munson talks with Nicholson about how he survived the storm on his bike, what he witnessed, and what he thinks about experiencing one of the legendary bike rides of 2020.
