In January 2017 I started a podcast focused on the bike industry trade. Talking with over 60 amazing people on how they are building a better bike industry and getting more people on bikes.
Today I published the final, "Goodbye" episode on the Shift Up Bike Industry Podcast. It is bittersweet to say goodbye to this project as this was a large fuel to the idea of starting a bike shop! Once I opened the shop it was spreading me very thin as I had to continue to focus on aspects of the bike industry that weren't relevant to my business model or customers. In 2019 I tried partnering with Bicycle Retailer but they were sold, invoices weren't paid, and in the end, it was a costly partnership for me. From then on I wasn't motivated to create for the bike industry trade platform and I wanted to focus in on my own customers and getting more families on bikes.
You can see the first few episodes of the Bike Here podcast over at bikehere.com. I most likely will start dual publishing the show notes there and here for better coverage with readers!
