Live Recording of KALW’s Biking Episode of “Chew On This”

Where can I go to make sure my old bike is ready for the open road? What the heck is a “sharrow”?

We’ll be answering these questions and many more about biking on the next episode of Chew On This – a new show launching at KALW 91.7FM.

We can’t be more excited to welcome Marc Caswell, program manager at the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and Patrick Smith, the assistant coordinator of the Bikemobile at The Bikery (Cycles of Change) this Saturday. They will be on-hand to answer YOUR questions about biking.

We want YOU to be a part of our live audience! We’ll be taping an upcoming episode all about biking in a city, and everyone is invited to attend. If you’re shy, don’t worry about being on camera, this will be for radio broadcast only. Bring your friends, family – all ages are welcome.

The show begins at 1:00PM, but come early to buy yourself lunch from one of the fabulous StrEATfood trucks. And if the weather is less than palatable, we’ll be in the park’s heated barn.

You can find out all about Chew On This and listen to our last episode at www.chewonthisradio.com, and be sure to follow our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/ChewRadio
