Description

Velo Visionaries presents a series of interviews with great thinkers of today’s global bicycle culture from the point of view of the person behind the handlebars.

Traveling by bicycle provides a unique perspective on your surroundings, often inspiring moments of insight and creating a profound connection to your community.
In Episode 4 of Velo Visionaries, we talk/ride with Gabe Dominguez, bandleader for SHAKE YOUR PEACE! and co-founder of the Bicycle Music Festival.
