E533 – Northwest Hub in Salem, Oregon (with Abdul & Kirk)



Kirk Seyfert & Abdullah Mustafa from The Northwest Hub join the show to discuss this pro-human bike shop and its programs honoring and empowering the humanity, dignity, and value of every person that needs a bicycle!  We chat about Abdul’s Everesting Challenge and how much climbing he recently did, the Frame Up program he was fundraising for, the history of the Northwest Hub’s development, and what they’re up to these days.  They’re a fine organization to donate to!

Also: Brock is podcasting from a parked truck in Tacoma, and the air quality has been terrible lately.

E532 – REBROADCAST: Eva From Clever Cycles!



this episode originally aired in July 2015, and we brig it to you due to the holiday weekend and our production schedule needing a break!  see you next week!

also, this week’s show is released at a time when devastating wildfires have seriously affected many places on the West Coast.  we stand in solidarity with all who have been affected by these tragic events and encourage those who are able to donate to reputable charities that are assisting with relief efforts.

Brock & Aaron are both out of town, but you’re in good hands, since people you’ve met before ARE actually flying this thing.  Eva from Clever Cycles is this week’s guest!  Thanks to our fantastic ghost hosts, Guthrie Straw and Steph Routh!

In this episode we cover:

– The future of cargo biking. (Or as Portlanders call it, “getting to where I’m going”)

– Family friendly riding in Portland, and abroad.

– “Making it till you Make it”.

– Trivia & Interesting things that all Americans probably should, but don’t actually know about Canada.

Join us!

This week was more of an “in-depth” interview with Eva as an episode, we’ll be back with mail & news updates in next weeks episode!
