It’s Bike Week on BTR!

First, we sit down with Morrigan McCarthy of Restless Collective, a two-person multimedia project that aims to explore the world, figuratively and literally, by bike. Along with her partner, Alan Winslow, McCarthy completed an 11,000-mile bike tour of the United States. Along the way, they photographed and interviewed everyday Americans for their take on one of today’s most “burning” political questions — how do you feel about global warming, gas guzzling, waste … you know, the environment? Currently, Restless Collective has its sights set on a bike tour around the world. The goal: investigate the differences and commonalities between twenty-somethings in over 50 countries.

And later, we head to the Motor City for an interview with Zak Pashak, a young Canadian politician and music entrepreneur that’s breaking into the bike business in a big way. Despite the city’s bad rap, Pashak fell in love with Detroit and opened his own bicycle manufacturing plant, Detroit Bikes. Check out Matt’s article on Pashak for more!

Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Anis Mojgani and The Dwindlers.
