Episode 71 – Increasing Bicycle Competency in Future Generations through Bicycle Playgrounds w/ Minneapolis Bike Parks

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Continuing with our theme of climate change, we hear from the founder of Minneapolis Bike Parks: Devin Olson and Program Director: Kim Holm. They’re a fantastic example of a successful grassroots organization. They focus on building Bicycle Playgrounds that increase the Bicycle competency in kids, so that future generations are capable and comfortable with using a bike to get around.
