Kore North Bike Shop Owner, Ryan Cowling - The Inside Line Podcast

Welcome Mountain Bikers. This is Vital MTB’s The Inside Line podcast, I’m gordo and I hope you had a good holiday season. With 2021 just a moment away, I’m stoked to be sitting with a local bike shop owner for our show today. Ryan Cowling is the owner of Kore North Bike Shop in Meridian, Idaho. If I ever had a dream shop setup, it would be this…mountain bikes and skateboards!

We discuss his history with bicycles, discovering mountain biking while he lived in Japan, the ups and downs of running a local bike shop, being robbed and recovering stolen bikes with help from good friend Prison Mike, his love of Red Bull Rampage and so much more.
