E520 – Kurstin Graham from the Reno Bike Project



Kurstin Graham is the author of bikepackingnv.blog and has spent a lot of time helping others find adventure in northern Nevada.  He recently took a bikefishing trip in the Toiyabe Range, among other adventures.  He’s also involved with the Reno Bike Project, which repurposes abandoned bikes following the Burning Man festival, and has spent some time working with the Tahoe to Pyramid Lake Trail – a significant undertaking which runs 117 miles from Lake Tahoe to Pyramid Lake (the Lake being within tribal lands). We’re grateful for the chance to hear about all of these projects, and grateful to Sebastien Poule for connecting us.

E515 – Keith rides the Indy Underground



It’s a good time to reach out to our long-time donors and friends of the show – quarantining ourselves from our studio and our usual in-person interviews opens up the opportunity to connect with folks who have been with us for awhile.  Today: Keith Hutchison, listener and supporter from Indianapolis, who’s an instigator in the city’s bike fun scene when he’s not exploring unpaved and hidden scenes of the city to check out birds and secret graffiti galleries.  Check out Keith’s instagram and follow events through GentleFolks Bicycle Riding and Exploration Society of Indianapolis or Bike Party Indianapolis!

E505 – Chris For Metro!



Chris Smith is a favorite repeat guest, and while we know he’s an incredibly smart guy, the general public is about to learn how much he can help the Portland region!  Chris is tossing his hat into the ring in the upcoming May election for Metro Councilor in the regional government that helps to regulate transportation, housing, and environmental matter, among other things. There are some times when it feels good to be an independent platform, and we are excited to endorse him as the best choice for the job.  Listen to our chat with him here, read the great recent BikePortland article about his campaign, and visit chrisformetro.com to dive into supporting him!
