It’s been nearly 4 years of podcasting, and we celebrate with a live storytelling event at Velo Cult Bike Shop & Tavern in Portland OR’s Hollywood district. Dan Christensen tells his account of how bicycling allows the world to touch him, Sarah Gilbert lays down the beat poetry of empowerment, and Joe Kurmaskie shares several stories of life on two wheels. We also enjoyed a ride with the Grilled By Bike crew before the show!
Sarah Mirk of the Portland Mercury, Bitch Media & the Popaganda podcast had a bike she loved. Then it got stolen. What happened next… may surprise you. A man without a home said he had a “funny story” about the bike that “looks well loved.” A park meetup was where she met a friendly homeless guy who told me, “Your bike is sweet. It hauls ass.” Listen in for the rest of the story and hear Sarah’s precautions and advice for those with stolen bikes.
Also: e200 live show! (with live streaming), why Aaron doesn’t have friends, Brock gets the tandem restored, the retort to close pass contest wraps up.
Nathan Jones is the owner of Ride Yr Bike who conceived of and organized the Trans Am Bike Race, an unsupported ride from coast to coast in which the participants competed simply for the bragging rights! He tells us about the trip.
