What’s Your Speed?

Podcast von GoodSpeed Cycles

“A bicycle is fast enough to go far, but not too fast to savor what you find along the way. It’s the good speed.” That’s the founding principle of our bike shop, GoodSpeed Cycles in Homewood, Illinois. This podcast will help anyone who rides a bike (or wants to) find their own good speed, featuring information on bike rides, cycling tips, area route suggestions and reviews, local bike clubs, maintenance advice and more! Plus we’ll talk to the people, organizations, and businesses who are making cycling the good speed in our Homewood-Flossmoor community. 

Diesen Podcast kannst du überall hören, wo es Podcasts gibt und auch ohne Mitgliedschaft in der Podimo App.

She also shared how to turn your kid into a runner, as well as her Worst/Best about biking, walking and running in the Ho-Flo. You can find more about Michelle on her website, including links to all her social media channels at https://michelleforflossmoor.com [https://michelleforflossmoor.com] If you have a WORST thing about walking, running or biking in the Ho-Flo that keeps you up at night, and also a BEST thing that you'd like to share, call our Worst/Best hotline, 708/794-6588 and leave us a message.

episode An Interview with Tom Dobrez artwork
An Interview with Tom Dobrez
Tom Dobrez grew up with bikes the way most of us did - riding around with friends, risking grave injury riding sketchy ramps, and exploring the area miles around his home. As a grownup, he and his friend Mark Hamlin wanted to help people recapture the carefree exhilaration of  cycling with an adult twist—and thus founded perhaps the South Suburbs' most iconic underground ride, Biking the 'Burbs for Beers. We also talk to Tom about Bike the Gem [https://www.facebook.com/events/village-of-flossmoor-illinois/bike-the-gem/634772450368289/], Flossmoor's cycling preview of their Hidden Gem half marathon route, as well as his Worst/Best picks.
