E353 – Tori Bortman: The Legend



Tori Bortman!  We should have had her on years ago.  She is one of the senior hosts on the KBOO Bike Show, teacher of mechanics and skills at Gracie’s Wrench, author of The Bicycling Big Book of Cycling for Beginners: Everything a new rider needs to know to gear up and start riding; on top of this, she is a delightful conversationalist.  We get to know the legend in person, discussing Portland’s vegan heritage sites, Christian rock music, radio, music, wrenching and teaching people to ride, and much more!

The Community Cycling Center offers bicycles & service to people who might otherwise experience barriers to access.  Andrea Chiotti is the bridge between the shop & the office and cares a lot about engaging youth in mechanical skills.
