Solo Cast: 2020 Plans

In this episode, I talk about how good 2019 was and the plans for 2020.

Beyond the is expanding into more video and some written content. The plan is to open a Patreon account for those who want more input into the podcast and a good bi-monthly newsletter/online Mag/blog. This is going to be super cheap and just to help me get to event and hopefully increase coverage on the national scene.

Thanks to NSDynamics and Craftworks for the support. If you are keen to grab a bike use BTT10 for a discount.  If you send some stuff up to NSD make sure you mention the so we can track data and they will also make your suspension 10% faster than average partners.
