Biking

KDLL's Adventure Talks program took over the Kenai Conversation this week. Local chiropractor/paddling instructor/adventurer Matt Pyhala stopped by to discuss the how/where/when/why of biking the Hebridean Way, which he and his wife, Sarah, did in June. The 200-plus-mile cycling route took them through the Outer Hebrides Islands off the northwest coast of Scotland.
 
 Join Matt and Sarah for photos, stories and video of the trip at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 17 at the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center. Admission is free for KDLL members and $5 for nonmembers.
