Andrew Shaw-Kitch & Scott Anselmo from Bikes For Humanity drop in to chat about how they’re getting more bikes under people for the common good and enjoying themselves along the way! Also, Anna’s mom Betsy Meeker visits from Oklahoma and fills us in on the “bike phenomenon” of the 1970’s!
Thanks to our beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers, and, as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going!
Also: Thanks to Sebastien for the mugs! Brock rode another century; Aaron is done with tubeless rims and describes a toe injury in graphic detail.
You’ve heard us talk about Inspired To Ride, the documentary about the Trans Am Race invented by our friend Nathan Jones of Portland’s Ride Yr Bike. Now, here’s the question and answer session featuring many competitors from the race & corresponding film addressing the audience’s curiosity. The film was great, and we recommend it highly!
Josh Guttmacher, Andy Schmidt & John Fritz are boat fans who also like to bicycle. We discuss, in this long awaited #boatmonth podcast, how boating and bicycling are similar, transporting your vessel by bike, and adventures in getting marooned or racing past “secret” racecourse markers. Never thought we’d be on a boat.
Erin Kelley just wanted to see how the podcast was made, and ended up chatting with us about Brock’s bike camping weekend, Aaron’s plans to adopt a new bike with someone special, and her own time off from work and how that gave her time to sort and declutter her stuff! And it turns out she was a fascinating guest! Aaron also googled the highest point in PDX.
David Griffiths took a trip to Colombia with his handcycle for the World Bicycle Forum after his first visit to our studio, and returns to share some of his experiences there, as well as some new ideas on transportation and mobility! Also Brock tries to come up with a way to tie this into #boatmonth.
