Interchange – John Smith – Bikesmiths

Host Andy Mahler interviews Bloomington activist John Smith, owner of Bikesmiths and organizer of Count US!, about bicycles, circuses, highways, and Major Moves. John Smith is an accomplished photographer, award-winning automobile mechanic, world traveller, and former candidate for US Congress. He became an activist when he discovered that his home was directly in the path of one of the proposed corridors for the new terrain I-69 highway. The connections he made with other residents along the various alternative routes led him to continue his organizing efforts even after the path affecting his home was rejected.
