Interview: Mike Flanigan of A.N.T. Bicycles – NAHBS 2011

Mike talks about advocacy in terms of supporting advocacy organizations and bike events, but also by actively hoping that his ideas will be copied.

Interview: Renold Yip of YiPsan Bicycles – NAHBS 2011

Yip became a cyclist early, and he clearly does what he does out of love of bikes. But when he talked about advocacy was when he started singing my tune.
