E414 – DBR Down Under



DBR is a Portland Bike Fun Icon, and also rode his bike across the Australian continent.  We ask him about the details, and he delivers, including the preferred cheap beer VB, catching roadhouses before they close, and dealing with critters.  Lots of critters.

Also: Brock rides through snow with friend of the show Ross, and Guthrie works on his back injury.

E410 – Oregon Coast Railriders



Oregon Coast Railriders, the adventure on the Oregon coast that lets you ride the rails by pedal power, is about to open for their 2018 season.  Guthrie went out last year to see what’s up – how does it work, and what is it like?

Join OC Railriders starting May 19, 2018 in Bay City, Oregon.  Bike there over the weekend and camp at Cape Lookout State Park afterward, or catch the Wave transit bus from Portland, or drive out if you have access to a car.

Also consider a visit to their new project Vance Creek Railriders in Shelton, Washington, or Joseph Branch Railriders in Joseph, Oregon!


E409 – Solo Una Noche by Eric Wahlstrom



Eric Wahlstrom listens to our show, and created a new card game themed around Luchadore wrestling called Solo Una Noche!  We discuss the concept, how gameplay works, and then Aaron takes on the master at his own game!  Follow progress towards the game becoming available to the public, sign up for updates, and contribute to the crowdfunding campaign, at cabin21games.com!  Thanks for tuning in to Gaming Week on the Sprocket Podcast.

Also, Brock references a weekend camping trip, a 54 mile ride, and another little game known as Bros Icing Bros (it’s a real thing).


E408 – Bikes & Dungeons & Dragons with Jimmy



Jimmy plays Dungeons & Dragons!  It’s a great way to create inclusive fun that keeps you busy and happy with like-minded people.  He’s also a bikey coworker of Aaron’s.  We dig in!

E407 – No More Freeways with Aaron Brown



Aaron Brown joins us in studio to talk NoMoreFreewaysPDX, an effort he leads to impact policymakers’ decisions through groundswell activism & advocacy for the better good of our communities here in Portland, Oregon.  Is a freeway expansion really a good idea?
