Just Riding Along presented by ProGold

About the Show


"Just Riding Along," with Andrea, Full Face Kenny, and Pool Boy Matt is bike talk from educated and experienced bike mechanics. While it's based on mechanic talk, don't expect it to be kid-friendly, bland discussion about technical specifications.  Listeners are always welcome to call in to the live show to say "hey," ask questions about their old junker, new parts, Craigslist bike deal, or just talk about beer.
