Description

Steph Routh on a bikeFrom U-Haul to You-Haul: How to Move by Bike

presented by Steph Routh

 

Moving to a new home is often considered one of life's top 10 most stressful events, but it doesn't have to be! Add bikes, have fun. Bike moves transform a task traditionally filled with untold drudgery into a stuff parade and a housewarming party. Moving by bike has become a growing movement.
Spend an hour with Steph Routh, who has participated in 67 bike moves to date, and explore this joyous approach to life change in a way that builds community and helps broaden our perspective of what's possible.
Steph Routh is author of the book "How to Move by Bike" and the Mayor of Hopscotch Town, a consulting and small publishing firm that inspires and celebrates fun, lovable places for everyone. You can find her on the web at hopscotchtown.com and follow her on Twitter @stephrouth.
