E449 – Andrew & Patty




Andrew Shaw-Kitch and Patty Otero drop into the studio and explain how they plan to bicycle from California to New York during the winter.  Is this tempting of fate, or a fabulous adventure in the making?  It sounds like a lot of fun since we don’t usually get to talk about bicycle touring that much in the winter ourselves.

As always, thanks to our drink sponsor The Beer Mongers & our generous Patreon donors.

E445 – REBROADCAST E140 Tim Mooney: Pedalshift



this episode is a rebroadcast of our friend Tim Mooney’s first appearance on the show in 2013!
Hope you enjoy – next week we will bring you another seasonal classic.
Aaron & Guthrie return to the studio in the new year.

Tim Mooney is working on a concept we like: how can you have a “grown-up job” and still pursue bicycle travel?  While he hasn’t found the magic solution yet, he created Pedalshift to begin the conversation among those of us who are interested.  We also discuss Portland’s changes over time, the World Domination Summit, and Tim’s bicycle tour down the West Coast.

Also referenced is Brock’s bicycle tour journal from 2012:
Brock & Adele Go Bicycling

Tim is also a podcast producer for Kimberly Wilson’s Tranquility Du Jourblogger, twitterer, and, of course, a loyal Sprocket Podcast listener.

E425 – Resiliency By Bike with Mike Cobb



This week, Mike Cobb tells us about his departure from an ordinary bike mechanic’s life into a quest to design and outfit a bike that can respond to crisis situations.  How do you mount a windmill to a bike? And why? Well, when the grid goes down, you know who to call. Mike details his outrageous cycle tour through the American southwest and what he terms “radical disassembly” to make a cargo bike fit into a prescribed box for shipping.  Among other things!
