E492 – How Oregon Got The Idaho Stop Law with Ray & Bjorn



Bjorn Warloe & Ray Thomas both worked on some very important legislation here in Oregon, and they return to the studio (graciously, after attempting a recording a few weeks ago that got dumped by a bad machine) to discuss pitching legislative concepts, persistence, and timing.  The “Idaho Stop Law” allowing bicycle riders to proceed without stopping through a signed intersection was passed in Oregon this year, and will take effect soon!

E491 – Thursday Night Ride & Tracklocross! with Mariana & Jeremy



Mariana & Jeremy join this episode to talk about Portland’s Thursday Night Ride (TNR), inspired in part by Mariana’s desire for something like Guadalajara’s “Cyclista Nocturna” and a lack of regular, noncompetitive events in town.  They also explain Tracklocross, an event which is competitive, in which one rides a track bike on rough terrain and has a great time doing it!

E478 – REBROADCAST Sara & Aaron’s Mom



Hosts are in summer mode (it’s not over yet) and so we’re bringing you an oldie.  Aaron’s visiting his mom, so we thought it would be a good time to bring back an episode in which she visited the studio, and stopped counting swears.  See you next week!

Today in the studio: Sara Dittmer, from Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Portland.  We talk comparative city life quality, regional disasters, and also talk shop about what one might do with their hair after a bicycle commute (Adele joins us by phone to clear up some thoughts that two dudes don’t have the experience to comment on).

Also: Aaron’s Mom also joins us! Aaron took Anna and his mom to the Oregon Aquarium.
