“Off-road bikers” – 5/27/16
It’s almost always bicycle season in Indiana, but the action picks up in the spring as Hoosiers air up the tires and hit the road. We visit one of central Indiana’s best-known riders, “Bike Mike” O’Neil, to talk about his five trips across America and what it’s like to run a country bike shop next to the longest rail-trail in the state.
