The annual Thanksgiving show drops on actual Thanksgiving this year (American Thanksgiving at least, sorry Canada). I wanted to do a refresh of my theme of “thanks bicycle touring.” What are YOU thankful about in the realm of bike touring? Call the Pedalshift voicemail and add your voice to things… take a minute and tell everyone what you’re thankful for. Be anonymous if you’d like… also email in your thoughts or hit social media with them.

– Last time we crossed paths you were in midst of a US tour for Miles of Portraits. I’m curious what you learned on that tour that reinforced or maybe surprised you telling the stories?
– The next Miles of Portraits leg is decidedly more international… why did you choose India?
– The theme for this tour is something that goes hand in hand with adventure… facing fears. What are the fears you’re both tackling with this tour?
– A couple I didn’t know, but I have friends who did know them, were murdered while on a bicycle tour last summer.
How do you process things like this in the context of facing fears on tour?
– Let’s talk more about the route you’re planning – where are you traveling and are you focusing on the portraits element most or are you doing events too?
– What are the tools you think you’ll rely on most to bridge language and cultural differences?
– Any differences in gear for this trip compared to the past ones?
– How can people follow and support this new trip?
