One year ago, Aaron turned a year older and a few friends gathered at the studio after a recording to celebrate the anniversary of Montana’s statehood. Aaron has a special connection to that day, and we wanted to mark the occasion. Present were Aaron & Anna, Guthrie, Armando, Brock & Adele, and we’re sharing a minimally edited version of a live mic in the room with all of their permission. You get to be a fly on the wall for this celebration.
We return this week to a perennial topic, popular because it is pervasive: riding in the rain. This edition, Armando brings the bike love and a pizza to the discussion about wet, gear, and drying out. Also Aaron takes a field trip to a pumpkin patch and Guthrie tries out apple cider donuts.
Adele hasn’t been on the show in a while, and that’s because she’s been working on a secret project with Brock: they have a bun in the oven! That’s right, little baby Cyrus is preparing for birth into the world as we speak, and Adele joins the show to fill us in on what it’s like to continue bicycling into pregnancy. It’s not all fun and games, but haters gonna hate, and there aren’t that many haters, really. And there is a lot of fun to be had!
Anna & Jayne join us to discuss an issue that is common for half of the population, but rarely talked about. How does someone’s monthly cycle impact their bicycle riding? What should those not privy to the experience learn? What, exactly, is a “Diva Cup?”
Jimmy Diesel & his sister Mary join to chat about Jimmy’s bicycle adventure from Lake Tahoe to Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine! He fills us in on his 104 day trip. Tim Mooney from Pedalshift joins us as well, because, y’know, bike touring!
Mail From Todd G in DC: A friendly FYI. Aaron was nearly impossible to hear this week.
From P-nut Butter Jar Matt – Speaking of the indignity of riding transit, did you happen to catch this State Farm ad?
Also, I saw these in my local grocery store the other day. Overnight oats are going mainstream! But, don’t buy these, just make them at home. It’s not hard. Seriously.
Guthrie, Aaron & Brock gave a live 20 minute presentation of the show at the first annual Portland Podcast Festival, an exciting event that brought many of Portland’s talented media creators together for a great night of fun. We captured our 20 minute set, plus some audio backstage before and after.
Many thanks to Greg & Sarah of Funemployment Radio and Jason Lamb of Minority Retort for their hard work putting this event together. Keep your eyes on the festival’s website for the next one!
Nathan Jones hasn’t been on the show in a while, and that’s because he’s been busy riding 18,000 miles around the planet. This weekend he gave a presentation at Bike Gallery’s Westmoreland location about the whole trip, including passage through monastery-filled eastern Europe, assembling a bike alone at 4am in an Indian airport, viewing a piece of Skylab at a truck stop in Australia, and letting the wind blow him around for a while in America’s heartland. He also discussed Mike Hall’s legacy and how he carried Mike’s bicycle tire pump the entire way. We’re sharing audio from the entire 2 hour presentation here!
Thanks to Bike Gallery Westmoreland for hosting this event! Visit their new location at 6717 SE Milwaukie Ave, Portland, OR 97202.
Emee Pumaregaloves beer, pizza, burritos, bikes and clothes! We chat about her affections for each in this episode, and find out a bit about her participation in the Portland bike fun scene! Check her Instagram at instagram.com/ejpevents
Also: donor Andre Johnson is in town! We chat about his Oregon ramblings. Brock sat in the woods while his wife ran a marathon, and Aaron got out The Kid (his fatbike) to dust off and ride.
We Got To Hang Out is a fairly new cycling-centric podcast that is already exploding in popularity! We met them while chatting on an episode of the KBOO Bike Show a few months back about podcasting about bicycling. Annalisa Fish & Abby Watson are enthusiastic about outdoor recreation and have had the chance to interview many notable people in the field, including Katie “Fn” Compton and John Watson of The Radavist. We Got To Hang Out is a proud member of the Wide Angle Podium network, host to many other fine shows about active outdoor recreation. You’ll want to hear their show!
Also: Brock rode a lot of miles in a chamois, and Aaron rented a car for his upcoming move.
