Not only does Mark start most of his days on a bike before sunrise - today Mark talks with Emily Piccone from Recycle A Bicycle on the numerous programs that serve both NYC youth and adults through education programs to learning bike mechanics.  And Emily and Mark share why they're passionate cyclists and the numerous positive ramifications biking and Recycle A Bicycle have on the public.

At age ten, when Stephanie Alves started sewing she had no concept that one day she would revolutionize the clothing industry by designing clothes for people with special needs.  ABL Denim, Stephanie’s company ( ), is producing jeans – yes jeans for various needs in different fabrics and styles to accommodate various needs and desires and is making consumers with disabilities elated because wearing jeans is an inalienable right.  You’re probably wearing them now and jeans are the only reason I ventured into broadcasting since my chosen field could care less what one sports in an on-air environment.  I even have my jeans categorized - my “nice jeans” are reserved for my talks at schools (k-12 and college) though I have to abandon them for corporate talks.  So, on behalf of a society that loves all things comfy, thank you Stephanie Alves for creating jeans for consumers with disabilities who like everyone – deserves the right to be comfortable and look cool!
