E429 – Rebroadcast: Jeff Everett & The FBC, Y’all



This content was originally published in November 2014, and it’s so much fun we’re bringing it back! Expect more new studio shows next week!  Happy Labor Day, y’all.

Jeff Everett (the Jeff Everett) is a relatively new Portland resident, but he’s been coordinating bike fun for years.  We talk about his early life in the southern US states, the bicycling scene in St. Louis, Missouri, and his move to Spokane, Washington where he established the long-running FBC, a series of rides at night leading from bar to bar, and through some shenanigans.  Jeff also fearlessly disassembled our sound board before the show to fix an issue, like a champ.

Check out the great short form documentary about Spokane’s FBC, Keep It Simple, on Vimeo.

Also: Brock & Team Sincerity do Cranksgiving, and Aaron goes to see Cold Specks.

E425 – Resiliency By Bike with Mike Cobb



This week, Mike Cobb tells us about his departure from an ordinary bike mechanic’s life into a quest to design and outfit a bike that can respond to crisis situations.  How do you mount a windmill to a bike? And why? Well, when the grid goes down, you know who to call. Mike details his outrageous cycle tour through the American southwest and what he terms “radical disassembly” to make a cargo bike fit into a prescribed box for shipping.  Among other things!

As always, thanks to our drink sponsor The Beer Mongers & our generous Patreon donors.

Also, Bicycle/Race, Adonia Lugo’s “…unforgettable picture of Los Angeles—and the United States—from the perspective of two wheels.” is available from Microcosm Publishing and wherever you get your books.

E417 – Chris Talks Autonomous Vehicles



Chris Smith has been a community transportation advocate (in his spare time!) for about 20 years, and thinks a lot about how our streets work.  Who better to explain the coming autonomous vehicle revolution from the perspective of Portland, Oregon?  I, for one, welcome our new overlords!  Did I say overlords? I meant protectors.  How does all of this work, how safe is it, and who’s running this thing, anyways? {redacted}
