Area 13 - Electric Bikes that are out of this world.

Ride The Loop with Randy Ford, Author of The Loop Atlas & Guidebook | EP 105

Posted by on

Hey Everybody! Welcome back to another episode of the Area 13 Ebikes Podcast. I've got a guest Randy Ford on today. He is a cycling advocate and definitely an avid ebiker. He has some interesting knowledge and experience with The Loop. And many of you know, I put a video out about that quite some time ago, and I think this is going to be a great follow up conversation to that video.

So I'm really looking forward to it. And I hope you are too. Thanks again for listening and let's jump right into another episode.

In today’s episode you’ll learn more about:

  • The concerns that Randy had regarding The Loop in Tucson, AZ and how that pertained to his and others riding experiences. 
  • What spurred him to write a book about The Loop and what he has found riding every single mile of it.  
  • Why he found our video on Ebike Rights to be such a catalyst to bringing awareness to tourism and locals riding on the loop and enjoying Tucson, AZ even more.
  • How Randy has played a pivotal role in working with key players to bring awareness and help create positive change for the city of Tucson, AZ.
  • Some of the cool things you can find on The Loop (and it’s not just the peaceful trails dotted with Saguaros)
  • What Randy is working on next and where you can get your copy of The Loop - Atlas & Guidebook
  • And so much more!   

Thanks again, Randy. I appreciate it again for everybody listening. Make sure to go check out The Loop, whether that's in-person at the actual trail or Randy's book on Amazon, it looks like a great resource. Like I said, I've got a copy of my hands right here. It sounds like it's only gonna get better from this point.

I appreciate him for doing that and for everyone else listening.

  • I sent this to my sister who is “Wintering” in Tucson and riding the loop! She found it most interesting and informative.
    Thanks, Kyle
