In this episode of the Bike Tour Adventures podcast, Steve O'Shaughnessy and I sit down for a conversation on how we got into podcasting, what led us to bikepacking and how our passion for biking drives the development of our podcasts and ultimately, take us on amazing adventures. Steve has on multiple occasions ridden the BC Epic 1000, AR 700 and Lost Elephant bike races. He has a deep appreciation of all things bikes and finds that his deepest connections are with people who like to travel by bike. Listen to this conversation and be sure to check out his podcast as well.
