ABOUT THE EPISODE

This is the first episode of a 5-episode special recorded on location in Bentonville, Arkansas. Host, Josh Blum, sits down with Luke Hall who is a Bentonville local with a very diverse background in cycling. They discuss Luke’s journey towards finding the bike again – his own Freedom Machine.
 
During the show they discuss the backstory behind why Luke decided to move to Bentonville from Kansas City. The guys also review the various jobs Luke has had related to cycling in the Bentonville region, which include: AirBnB host, web developer, bike shop employee, Rapha Popup Shop employee, multiple positions at Bike NWA, and most recently the coach of the H.S. Gravel Racing team, quite possibly the first and only H.S. Gravel Racing program in the nation.
 
They also go deep into why gravel riding and racing is important to Luke, as well as his thoughts on the humanization of cyclists and vehicles finding a common ground on gravel roads. Luke discusses what it was like to be invited on the preview ride for the first ever Big Sugar Gravel Race which will be hosted in October of 2020.
 
Currently Luke is a freelance Web Designer and Graphic Artist – Reach out if you are looking for those services.

ABOUT THE EPISODE

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.

About Jed:

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.
