Biking For Transportation With Lisa Corriveau (aka Spokesmama)

Have you ever wanted to ride your bike more for transportation?  Many of the benefits we get from cycling as a sport–exercise, endorphins, being social, getting outdoors–we can also get from cycling as a means of getting where we need to go.  Plus, the added benefit of helping the environment.  

In this episode, I interview Lisa Corriveau, better known as Spokesmama.  She’s a blogger, cycling advocate, and bicycle educator.  More importantly, she’s somebody who knows pretty much everything you would ever need to know about bicycling around town.
