Ruth Holliday owns the Bicycle Pedaler in Wichita along with her husband, Bob. The two met when they were RNs and bonded over their love of biking--so much so that they biked for their honeymoon in California. Over the years, Ruth and Bob have biked in New Zealand's two islands and Pacific Highway 1.

She and Bob started Bicycle Pedaler to be a welcoming place for bicyclists, a bicycle store owned by two avid bikers. They're still at it, 34 years later.

Hear Ruth talk about why she rides, what kind of gear new bicyclists need, and her favorite places to go.
