Show Notes

Our guest on this episode is Brandi Horton. Brandi is Vice President of Communications for the Rails to Trails Conservancy, the nation’s largest trail advocacy organization and a partner with Sports Backers for the Great American Ride. Brandi shared details on how the Rails to Trails Conservancy works across the country to create safe ways for everyone to walk, bike and be active outdoors, and how they are completing the vision for the 3,700-mile Great American Rail-Trail that will run from Washington State to Washington, DC. And as a bonus, we even had time to discuss her previous work with Farm Aid and its well-known music festival.

The Great American Ride, a virtual team cycling event that follows the path of the Great American Rail-Trail, kicks off on March 19, and team registration is available at www.GreatAmericanRide.org.
