Episode 1 of TDA Talks with Emily Hillstrom
In the first episode of our new ‘TDA Talks’ series we chat with Emily Hillstrom. As Director of Operations for the Mayor of Toronto in the midst of the current COVID-19 crisis, she had some interesting insights to share. Of course, we also talked about cycling and Emily shared some of her favourite memories from the 2016 Hippie Trail including a surprise reunion with her grandfather .
‘TDA Talks’ will be a recurring series where we ‘sit down’ (virtually) with past participants and staff from our long distance cycling tours. Each episode will be 15-20min long. We also hope to chat with aspiring riders and hear why they are considering signing up for a cycling adventure with us.
Our worldwide community of cyclists includes many interesting people from diverse backgrounds and we hope the talks are informative and engaging.
TDA Talks is part of our TDA Community News initiative – bringing together the stories and memories of our wider audience in these unique times. To find out ways you can be involved, read all about it here.
