E492 – How Oregon Got The Idaho Stop Law with Ray & Bjorn



Bjorn Warloe & Ray Thomas both worked on some very important legislation here in Oregon, and they return to the studio (graciously, after attempting a recording a few weeks ago that got dumped by a bad machine) to discuss pitching legislative concepts, persistence, and timing.  The “Idaho Stop Law” allowing bicycle riders to proceed without stopping through a signed intersection was passed in Oregon this year, and will take effect soon!

E491 – Thursday Night Ride & Tracklocross! with Mariana & Jeremy



Mariana & Jeremy join this episode to talk about Portland’s Thursday Night Ride (TNR), inspired in part by Mariana’s desire for something like Guadalajara’s “Cyclista Nocturna” and a lack of regular, noncompetitive events in town.  They also explain Tracklocross, an event which is competitive, in which one rides a track bike on rough terrain and has a great time doing it!
