E312 – Brittany Rides to Work (with special guest Dan Flores)



We chat with our friend Brittany about what it’s like to be a bicycle commuter in Portland, Oregon, even if you don’t go on a lot of special group rides or events.  What are the streets like? How do they facilitate a healthy existence in the city?  Also, we chat about some math and hair concepts.

And it’s the return of crowd favorite Dan Flores!
