E421 – Adele and Cyrus: Biking While Expecting



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!

E371 – Brad from Newfoundland



Brad Wade is a cross-country bicycle tourist from Newfoundland, and he is unique in his physiology: his heart is located in a different part of his body than most people’s, and only has one functional lung.  That hasn’t stopped him from adventuring!  We chat with him near the end of his trip about his experiences, health, food access, and (of course) his gear.  Aaron Green, author of We Were Like Sons and founder of The Regrainery, joined us in this conversation.

TopHat says Amtrak ought to allow cargo bikes.  Say it again!

Nathan chimes in on Amtrak too with a story from his childhood.

Doug Robertson is blogging at four season cycling!

Anna says saddle sores are dumb and there are some solutions:
-diaper rash cream
-hydrocortisone cream
-salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide cream (a.k.a the stuff for acne)

Dom from onebikeoneworld.com shares an unusual saddle to avoid the unpleasantness:

Drew the Welder says saddle sores could be boil/abscess instead of lymph system.  Best to stop riding until it goes away.

Also he mentions the Rinko for easy train travel!

Scott says everyone should get “‘bent” – as in recumbent bicycles. He referencesbikeism, and Australia’s HPV race.

PBJMatt asks: Why is it that all the great adventurers are British?

Review from Logan!  “Great podcast and I look forward to their show every week. Their perspectives foster community and collaboration.”
