The Goat Cave Podcast (Ep:97-Chris Dewar)
Today's guest is a Southern Ontario local who has played a huge role in skatepark advocacy, he and His company “Transitions Bike Parks” have been building some of the best BMX style pump tracks in Canada. On top of that, Chris Dewar has been behind the scenes for years within Canadian BMX, hosting Jams, writing articles in Chase BMX magazine, and even becoming a great role model for the younger generation. I'm super pumped to be sitting down with one of the first people I met within BMX, all these years later.
