S3E1 | Shift into Winter (Special Edition)
On November 6, 2019, The City of Calgary, Two Wheel View, Bike Calgary, and Knox United Church hosted the 3rd annual Shift into Winter event. Each year, a growing crowd of everyday cyclists comes to Shift into Winter to discover how much fun it is to ride a bike even when there’s snow on the ground. Maybe, ESPECIALLY when there’s snow on the ground! This year, local frostbikers Becca Cleaver, Pavneet Singh, Lori Andrews, and Greg Glatz shared their tips and tricks on winter cycling. The panel was moderated by Lindsay Bliek, who also rides every winter. After a few words of introduction from Kim Fisher from the City of Calgary, Greg Glatz from Knox United Church, Laura Istead from Two Wheel View, and Vanessa Urschel from Bike Calgary, the panel discussion got underway. We hope you enjoy hearing about how YOU can shift into winter on a bike.

S2E01 | How True Love Launched a Citizen Cyclery
Remember when riding a bike was fun? Remember when riding a bike WASN’T a competitive sport? In 2014, Alberta Venture magazine declared Sean Carter one of Alberta’s 50 Most Influential People. That remarkable feat, and many other contributions Sean has made to the province, can be traced back to a moment when true love changed him from a competitive cyclist into a bike man for the people. In 2010, he and his partner, Nadia Smiley, opened BikeBike, a store that sells bicycles, services, and products for everyday cycling, bicycle commuting, running errands, exploring your community, or exploring the city with your children ... all the activities that make cycling fun. Sean, a former host of the Bike Town podcast, returns to the podcast as a guest to share his vision for a citizen cyclery that gets people back on bikes.
