Emily T Gail Talk Story with Jeff Waraniak about Joy of Biking in Hawaii and Detroit

I stopped by Bike Works Beach and Sport, Queens Marketplace, Kohala Coast, Island of Hawaii and had a good time talking story with owner and long time friend Grant Miller, who is part of the Big Island Mountain Bike ohana.

After leaving Grant, I ended up calling Jeff Waraniak, who I met last summer in my hometown Detroit. Jeff has been an Associate Editor at HOUR Detroit Magazine, soon to be moving to Denver as an assistant editor for 5280 Magazine.

I asked Jeff to share with our listeners a story he had told me about reaching out to the Big Island Mountain Bike ohana couple years ago and the warm welcome they gave him.

Jeff shared his good experience visiting the Island of Hawaii and also lots of positive stories about biking events in Detroit like Slow Roll, Tour de Troit, and the urban bike culture he has enjoyed while living in Detroit.

We talked about couple subjects from some of his wonderful comprehensive storytelling. One about the DNR Outdoor Adventure Center and the impact of opening up in downtown Detroit.

The other is about Detroit certainly being the city of Champions when in October 1935, the Tigers won their first World Series. In December, the Lions won their first NFL championship, and in April 1936 the Red Wings won their first Stanley Cup, and a day later, the Detroit Olympics, the Wings’ minor league affiliate, won their championship in the International Hockey League. Held all three titles. Like myself, many Detroiters did not know this till recently.

When Jeff and I talked it wasn't official he was going to Denver ...I lived in Denver long ago and knowing what a mountain bike enthusiast Jeff is I'm excited for him discovering all the great trails and bike ways in Colorado.
No doubt he will enjoy life in Denver while saying nice things about Detroit!!!!
