This came in from Nancy Schulz, ED of the VT Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition about a recent discussion about winter bike commuting on VPR:

You may recall that a recent “Vermont Edition” program was devoted to bicycling in winter.  ”Vermont Edition” is a VPR program that airs at noon every weekday and is re-broadcast at 7:00 pm.  While I was in the studio, all six incoming phone lines were busy.  Many posted email comments on the VPR web site prior to and after the show.  Various people told me they tried to phone but couldn’t get through.  All of this indicates that there is great interest among VPR listeners in bicycling.  So, here’s the request:  If you’d like to see more “Vermont Edition” programming devoted to bicycling, please send an email message to VermontEdition@VPR.net.  VPR wants to provide programming that is valued by its audience, so please let your wishes be known.

They also talked with local shop owner, Glenn Eames of the Old Spokes Home. You can listen to the full program and read the discussion here. I’ll echo Nancy’s sentiment that VPR offers quality programming and it’d be great to hear more about biking on there. Send them your thoughts if you agree.

Afterward, head on over to www.vtbikeped.org to learn all about Nancy’s work as a statewide bike/ped advocate.
