  1. Hi,
    I’ve been subscribed to your podcast for about a year now, and really look forward to it and enjoy it. Great features and interviews. I especially enjoyed the interviews from press camp. I live in Santa Rosa CA. and have ridden Levi’s Gran Fondo both years. It is an incredibly organized event with awesome support. The weather this year was a perfect 80 degrees with no wind at the ocean! If you get a chance next year, come out for a really fun ride and event. Just a note, there were 6,000 riders, not 9,000 that you mentioned in the last podcast. anyway, keep up the great work and I look forward to the next one!
    cheers for a sometime bicycle commuter and weekend warrior, Mario

  2. Hi Mario!

    Thanks for your nice message. I’m glad you enjoy the show.

    Levi’s Gran Fondo sounds like a really great event and one that I need to put on my list of rides to do. Sorry for the error on the number of riders. I found several news articles that used the 9,000 number and several others than used the 6,000 number. Either way, it was obviously a successful event for Levi, the riders, the city and Levi’s charities. A real win-win-win-win!

    Take care and . . . enjoy the ride!
