We Got To Hang Out

Payson McElveen is a podcaster, cyclist, gravel crusher and world traveler. After many moons of scheduling and chatting Payson and I were finally able to carve out some time to chat about the things going on in his life. His recent trip to Africa in the spring and how Payson plans to prepare himself for the reboot of the cycling season. Payson is one of the busiest people that I’ve had on the show so it was an honor to steal a little bit of his time to chat about all the things. Enjoy!
