I met Doug Riegner (pictured above, right) while biking the famed GAP Trail in Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands, while we were staying at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. He, I, and others chatted for a while after our short ride through Ohiopyle State Park. Doug was our guide for the day and I was lucky enough to share a table with him as we sat down to lunch at the end of the day. Riegner shared stories about his work and why he travels to various places as a cyclist and advocate for better bicycle tourism. Shortly after meeting, Doug agreed to share more about the cool things he’s doing. If you want to learn about helping your community and how to better enjoy some of America’s (and the world’s) best biking trails, this interview is for you.
