Ride On! #1: Bike Prices Keep Falling · Consumers Question D2C · Paris Weighs Scooter Ban + More


Welcome to the Ride On! podcast with co-hosts James Gross and Julia Thayne.

‍Today is our very first podcast and we appreciate you joining along. To explain a little bit about how we will run the podcast, Julia and James will be taking a few topics from the week’s Micromobility Newsletter and discussing them in more detail. Topics can range from new vehicles and new mobility business models, to government policy and city infrastructure. Our goal is to better explore and snapshot the weekly happenings of the fastest growing and funnest form of mobility in the world: small, electric vehicles.
