In Episode 3 of “Tell Me About Your Bike,” Liz Schleeper and I meet in her bike room to discuss the joys of making friends on a bike, learning to mountain bike at night in a tidewater swamp, debate whether poison ivy is worse than a broken rib, the challenge of being outclassed by other riders and explore the value of democratic trail systems.
