E465 – Erinne & Kirk’s Bike Wedding Campout



Erinne & Kirk have been on the show with their dog Cordi before, but it’s been awhile, and a lot has happened since then… most notably, their epic wedding party that gave all of their friends the chance to grind some gravel in some of Oregon’s most beautiful coastal mountains.  We get the lowdown on the whole Trask River wedding experience, and talk a little about some other adventures (#boatdreams).

Also, it’s really hot in Portland right now.

E459 – Everything You Need To Know About Public Comment on Freeway Expansion, With Aaron Brown



(check back on website for show notes later today – posting quickly to get the info to you as soon as possible!)

Aaron Brown visits the studio to explain the public comment opportunity on the proposed freeway expansion project in Portland.  If you are local, engagement is a fine opportunity to express your opinion.


E457 – Rice Cooker Redux REBROADCAST



We fold in two episodes from earlier in the feed from Tad Hara and his friends from Team Japan.  In 2016 they competed in the Disaster Relief Trials alongside Team Sprocket Podcast.  In 2017 they returned to host the Rice Cooker Ride in which they demonstrated simple food preparation as a practical disaster response skill using a traditional Japanese wood-fired rice cooker. And in 2018 Tad brought more friends back into the studio, which is what we start this collection with.

Keep your ears tuned for Tad’s documentary project.  He and a friend returned to Portland this weekend to film subjects for a film about the bicycle lifestyle!  Aaron & Guthrie made sure to connect him with many special people, many of which you may already know.

See you back in the studio next week!
