Nathan Jones hasn’t been on the show in a while, and that’s because he’s been busy riding 18,000 miles around the planet. This weekend he gave a presentation at Bike Gallery’s Westmoreland location about the whole trip, including passage through monastery-filled eastern Europe, assembling a bike alone at 4am in an Indian airport, viewing a piece of Skylab at a truck stop in Australia, and letting the wind blow him around for a while in America’s heartland. He also discussed Mike Hall’s legacy and how he carried Mike’s bicycle tire pump the entire way. We’re sharing audio from the entire 2 hour presentation here!
Thanks to Bike Gallery Westmoreland for hosting this event! Visit their new location at 6717 SE Milwaukie Ave, Portland, OR 97202.
Lizzy took a huge bike tour over 6 months covering all 48 contiguous states, with a pet rat, Beefy, in tow, and ate a vegan diet the whole time. She tells us some tales from the road. Did we mention she’s a friend of Superfan Aqua? Check out her adventures from multiple tours at withinbikingdistance.com
Steph Routh went vegan for a year on a bet she thought she would win. Turns out she has incredible self-restraint! Brock was there for the first non-vegan thing she ate since 2014, and asked if she’d share the moment.
Congratulations on a huge life experiment, Steph! It’s inspiring to try something new, even if it’s challenging.
Maren Souders has never, ever owned a car. That’s an achievement even for those who’ve tried! She brings us some inspiring stories and thoughts on low-car life, the value of listening, and trying to eat vegan while taking Amtrak trains across the country. Notably, she’s spent some time on a multi-city listening tour, sitting in public places with a “free empathy” sign! Her webistes:dreamintochange.com & happytolisten.com
Because Lisa wasn’t able to make it to our Jonathan Maus interview, and because I think she’s just good for the podcast, here’s Lisa (I call her Pins) and I chit chatting it up for almost 2 hours. Most of it about food.
Also, Brock and Adele’s latest and last tour update.
You can’t get this shit on the radio, this is only for you internet hounds!
