Anyone who knows me knows that I'm an avid cyclist. Whether I'm doing leisurely loops around Central Park, or hundred mile rides while training for my next Ironman, if I'm exercising and not running, I can either be found on my Specialized Venge, or my Peloton spin bike. Not only is it amazing exercise, not only is it a bicycle seat a great place from which to see the world, but for me, probably the best benefit of cycling is the massive dopamine hit that I get from ten minutes into my ride, that lasts for several hours after the ride has ended. There's truly nothing like it.

That's why, when I found out that Specialized Bicycles had a non-profit component called The Specialized Foundation, and that The Specialized Foundation focuses on getting school kids with ADHD on bicycles as a way to temper the negative effects of ADHD, there was absolutely no question that I had to get the heads of the foundation on the FTN Podcast.

This amazing organization is doing incredible things for kids with ADHD, and they're growing by the day. I'm so honored to be joined by both Ted Theocheung, the CEO of the Specialized Foundation, and Kimberly Price, Ph.D., Director of Research and School Programs for the Specialized Foundation.

This is, yet again, more proof that exercise is one of the key components to utilizing the faster brain of someone with ADHD. The research is strong, the foundation is doing amazing things to prove that. This is an interview you don't want to miss, whether you have children or not!

I guess Queen was right when they said "Get on you bikes and ride!"
