E538 – Karen & Keith’s First Bike Camping Trip



Karen & Keith were interested in bicycle camping, and so they went out to try it for the first time!  We talk about what the experience was like from the perspective of someone who’s new to the idea.  Routefinding, traffic & road surfaces, tire sizes, tents, and camp stoves, and much more.  Follow Karen at @pogschampion and Keith at @eyeletsandoptions.

Thanks to Mountain Shop and their webinar series that gave Karen the idea to try it out herself!

Also, Brock & Aaron chat about mechanical difficulties and other mishaps.

Thanks to our nationally recognized “top beer bar in Oregon” beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers, now open for more than 4,000 days consecutively. They have a patio outside the place and, if you’re lucky, you might be able to catch some sports with sound.  The big stick remains indoor on the ceiling.  And, as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going!

E536b – REBROADCAST E317 in memoriam to Dan Gebhart



this week we’re sharing a portion of an episode recorded with Dan Gebhart (who’s a time traveler) in his memory.  The Portland bicycle community lost Dan on September 22 according to an article on BikePortland.org, and we will miss him dearly.  A ride in remembrance is planned for him on Sunday, October 18 at 2pm starting at the Mt. Scott Community Center.

Soren Impey & Dan Gebhart are involved with Bike Loud PDX and drop in to explain why streets don’t have to be dangerous to work, and what their organization is doing to catch the attention of Oregon’s legislators.  They’re riding from Portland to Salem to make their voices heard!

Also: Aaron washes a hat.

E534 – The Black Resilience Fund, with Cameron Whitten



We’re joined by Cameron Whitten, notable for many admirable projects and involvements, cofounder of the Black Resilience Fund, a direct financial assistance program spurred into existence by awareness of the ongoing needs of black Portlanders in these unusual times.  Cameron shares their experiences in life that led them to the point of being able to recognize these needs, and some ideas of what working towards a better world might look like.  We recommend that everyone who is able to donate do so!
