In this episode of Bike Tour Adventures, I speak with George Beesley, bike tour adventurer and fellow podcast host. With a start in finance, and most likely a cushy job paying good money, George decided to go on an adventure, and what better way to do that than to fly to the top of Alaska and start cycling south. Since that time, he started a podcast, which has since been revamped into an adventure business as well.
