Phil in AK approves of the beards.

JohnnyK adds ASCII beard art and thinks cycling is good for your back pains.

Tim is taking the Amtrak sleeper car too!

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.”

E234b – Inspired To Ride, Portland Premier Q&A



 

You’ve heard us talk about Inspired To Ride, the documentary about the Trans Am Race invented by our friend Nathan Jones of Portland’s Ride Yr Bike.  Now, here’s the question and answer session featuring many competitors from the race & corresponding film addressing the audience’s curiosity.  The film was great, and we recommend it highly!


E234 – BOATS with Josh Guttmacher, Andy Schmidt & John Fritz



Josh Guttmacher, Andy Schmidt & John Fritz are boat fans who also like to bicycle.  We discuss, in this long awaited #boatmonth podcast, how boating and bicycling are similar, transporting your vessel by bike, and adventures in getting marooned or racing past “secret” racecourse markers.  Never thought we’d be on a boat.

A few links: Seattle’s Center for Wooden Boats, Portland’s Lincoln Street Kayak & Canoe Museum, Boston’s Community Boating, and their universal access program.

Thanks to our beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers, and, as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going!

Note: When Tammy and Logan came in to Clever Cycles they “were very polite” and apologized to the customer for the interruption.

Also: Inspired to Ride film was awesome, Brock rode De Ronde PDX, and Aaron is testing his newly home-built wheelset.
