Listener Darren Sinn connected with me a few months ago as he was beginning his tour through Europe by bicycle. We spoke about: traveling New Zealand, meeting people, staying over in London, the tour plan, Willy Weir and the bicycle as a passport to adventure, bankrolling a year-long tour, diversions while traveling like photography and beer, the iPhone bucket amplifier, the Surly Long Haul Trucker and its facility for BMX parks, touring gear, problem stories, and Darren’s immutable law of bicycle touring.
Tour de Clack is coming, led by our friend and former guest Matt Picio! Tour de Clack is an inaugural bike ride in rural Clackamas County on July 7 2012. It’s free, and to draw attention to water quality projects done by the ride’s sponsor, the Clackamas River Basin Council (CRBC).
