E363 Peter Koonce Talks Dutch Infra



Peter Koonce manages the City of Portland Bureau of Transportation’s Signals, Street Lighting, & ITS Division. Today, however, he regales us with tales of biking in every Cyclist-American’s go-to country for arguing infrastructure.

Yes, that’s right, we talk about biking in the Netherlands. Specifically, Delpht, NOT Amsterdam.

damn! I forgot to get a photo.

And as always thanks to the Beer Mongers for providing our tasty beverages

Speaking of The Beer Mongers… (from the Willamette Week)
A Local Business Totally Trolled Willamette Week—And It Was Awesome
BeerMongers twisted the WW logo and printed it on shirts

BeerMongers decided to have a little fun at our expense, twisting the WW logo into a BM logo and printing our criticism (“Right breweries. Wrong beers.”) on the back. We were both chastened and honored. The mark of a truly great trolling.

E360 – Bryce & Bean Can Take The Heat



Bryce & Bean are relatively new transplants to Portland, but they’re probably taking the summer temperatures better than we are.  Living in Tucson, Arizona gave them plenty of experience in beating the heat and riding bikes in it.  Bryce works for Velo Cult as one of their shop staff after having a “come to bicycles” moment, and Bean spent a lot of time in a bakery with the cool bike kids of the Southwest. We talk about life there and here, and what’s next for the two of them.

Also: Brock did the WNBR, and Aaron did not, no buts about it. Aaron built 2 bikes in one day.
