Dynamo Jenny

Dynamo Jenny

A podcast about women, bikes, and taking up space in America. Few things changed the public landscape for women quite like the advent of bicycles, and yet, the cycling industry's focus on white men makes one think that no one else rides. This is a retelling of who gets to adventure through the town square and out into America on the vulnerable, and venerable, bicycle.
