Dan and Ian often use this show as a platform to talk about the things that they are most passionate about.

This week, we are taking a look at two of Dan's favorite topics: cycling and event-based businesses.

Uli Fluhme is the co-founder of GFNY, a cycling event in New York city that was the first of its kind in America, modeled after the traditional Italian Gran Fondos.
