What happens when you start using your bike to get to places? Turns out, a lot of unexpected things.

In this fifth episode, I interview Lauren Crabtree where we talk about her “gateway drug,” the humble bicycle and how that got her to noticing how neighborhoods, towns and cities are built for or against people. Lauren is fascinating to talk to since she’s got a wealth of real world experience advocating for more walkable and bikeable places through her day jobs with Active Transportation Alliance in Chicago, IL and the Memphis Medical District Collaborative in Memphis, TN.

Lauren has a lot of practical (and professional) advice and inspiration for anyone wanting to lead change for their neighborhood.
