Unlocking the Puzzle of Bicycle Nirvana

Wesley Cheney/Liz Schleeper

In Episode 5 of “Tell Me About Your Bike,” Liz Schleeper and I talk about the differences between ‘cross bikes and gravel bikes, learning to mountain bike at night, the Alpine Gran Fondo, and how biking nirvana is always just a day away.

Jeremiah Bishop’s Alpine Gran Fondo is held annually on the last Sunday of September, crossing the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and West Virginia. Learn more about this phenomenal ride:

Indian River Park, a.k.a. Ipswich, is a fantastic suburban mountain biking destination, and well worth visiting:

Eastern Virginia Mountain Bike Association has led the effort to build and maintain the trails at Ipswich:
