In the spirit of Bike to Work Day, we get a bikeable Baltimore status update from to Liz Cornish, executive director of Bikemore, which advocates for roads that are safer and more accessible for cyclists as well as pedestrians. In the second half of the show, founder and program director Chavi Rhodes and longtime mechanics mentor Lee, from BYKE - Baltimore Youth Kinetic Energy collective, talk about how its teen participants learn personal and professional development through bicycle mechanics and mentoring. For more information about BYKE visit the site here and to learn more about Bike to Work Day and other biking events, check those out at Bikemore.
