Dave Schlabowske joined Sven, JK and Tony in the Everyday Cycles Riverwest Studio to talk about his recent trip to northern Wisconsin for a week of winter camping and fat-biking. Dave’s base of operations was ROAM Adventure Basecamp just outside Seeley, WI. Dave talks about his gear, his bikes and his dog! We then get into a conversation about the Complete Streets program designed to integrate cycling, pedestrians and cars in a safe and efficient environment. Dig!
Also, thanks very much to Dave for this week’s photos!
