036 - A Conversation with a Black Cyclist

June 5, 2020

I'm recording this on Friday, June 5th, almost one week after the Black Lives Matter protests started and spread throughout the country. To say this is an interesting time in our history is an understatement. And to say I'm curious about where we go from here, equally so.

I like asking questions. I like learning. And I like talking to interesting people. And this week, I got to do just that with my friend Christian.

He's black, he's a cyclist, and he's been in the cycling industry for almost two decades.

In this episode, we have a candid chat on his back porch about how he's feeling right now, what it's like being african american in a predominantly white industry, and more

It's an awesome conversation, and I'm seriously stoked that I have friends like that who are open to having the conversations that matter. I sincerely hope you enjoy this episode.
