In Interview 034 of Bike Tour Adventures I have the chance to talk with and get to know James Lagen. In 2008, James and three friends rode their bikes and skateboards from Chicago to New York City. Fueled by youthful ignorance, the four navigate America’s landscape through a maze of wrong turns and unfortunate circumstances. Today we are going to hear from James about their adventure and what they learned along the way. With their upcoming documentary, Shred America, their project is coming to an end.
Cheers and keep on pedalling.
