Eben Weiss, the famed urban bicycle blogger and author known as Bike Snob NYC, joins the show today to talk about why he thinks helmets are overrated. The tenth annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival is upon us, and we talk with co-founder Brooks Reynolds about why pork pairs well with pedals. Plus there’s another edition of Parrot Talk to answer your burning questions about all things bicycling!
