When I moved back to Buffalo, I was blown away by what I saw. There was a burgeoning bike community, a resurgent culture, world-class food, and some of the most endearing people anywhere. I became part of a small community of change makers working to pull the city up from its bootstraps.
In 2018, I started hosting free history tours by bike. I wrote songs, brought poems to read, shared jokes, and showed people some of my favorite places. Much to my surprise, it worked! More than 250+ people showed up, and they inspired me to think about how to grow bigger and better.
