Biking and Talking Through All 50 States

Bruce Robinson, KRCB

Riding a bicycle through all 50 states is a good way to get acquainted with America. And talking with folks, in depth, everywhere along the way is an even better way. Today we meet a man who is doing both.

Register, who lives in Houston, Texas when he is not exploring America's back roads, explains why he decided to undertake this multi-year project.

Brian Griffith will be welcoming the Banjo Babes to our studios this Thursday morning around 10am. They'll be playing and talking about their upcoming show at the Arlene Francis Center in Santa Rosa on Friday, December 11 at 7:00 pm. Click here for tickets.
