NHPR’s morning call-in show, The Exchange, is discussing bicycling in New Hampshire today. If you have thoughts to offer before 10am, call or email the show. Otherwise, the discussion will be available for streaming beginning later this afternoon on NHPR’s website. It’s worth a listen for anyone who cares about expanding travel options in the Queen City.
