Ryan Packer did a fantastic job taking the helm of Seattle Bike Blog over the winter, writing 64 posts December through March.
Ryan was the Temporary Editor of Seattle Bike Blog while I focused on writing the first draft of a book for UW Press about bike history and culture in Seattle. Being a parent during COVID is very challenging, and my time had disappeared. So I was facing a tough choice in late 2020, and it seemed like I was going to need to shut down the blog entirely if I didn’t find someone who could do the job without much help from me. So you could say that Ryan saved Seattle Bike Blog.
I invited Ryan to talk about some of the most important stories of the past few months and to talk about taking over the Editor role. Check out our conversation above.
