Josh is back with a second episode! He sits down with Jed Olson. Jed is full of life experiences, experiences around the La Crosse area, trails, parks, public land, and digging dirt. They chat about some of the history of the city property around Grandad’s Bluff and what it’s been and where it’s going. This episode gives you an idea of some of the interesting people involved in the area trails.
Jed plays in the dirt all day as the owner of VeloCity Projects. He has been back and forth across the globe following one adventure after another by bike, board, or boots. When it came time to raise a family, he and his wife, Kelly, paused just long enough to plant a few roots in the Driftless Area, and then started the adventures all over again, this time with kids in tow. La Crosse and the surrounding area offer all the recreation possibilities they could ever ask for accompanied by a warm welcoming sense of community. Jed loves that he can pick his kids up from school, hit the woods, slopes, or water, and still have dinner on the table before his wife gets home from work. By serving on the ORA board, he has an opportunity to improve and highlight this beautiful place he calls home.
