E554 – Guthrie’s Adventures in 2020



Cohost Guthrie Straw took a very responsible, very intense and very isolated bicycle tour across Oregon last summer in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.  How do you stay separated from others, avoid stores, and carry all your food while riding across the state?  We talk about this.  And a LOT about food.

See Guthrie’s photos here. (click link for more)

E550 – TEN YEAR PODSTRAVAGANZA



OMG people!  It’s been 10 years since The Sprocket Podcast started dropping mp3s on the internet full of bicycle talk with a conscience.  So grateful for your presence with us in this made-up imaginary space that in which nonetheless we’ve cultivated productive and challenging conversations about real issues and inextricably woven them into complete bullshit.  That is why we love you!

For this 10 year anniversary and to mark the 550th episode of the podcast, we start with an acknowledgement of the time we are living through in the American democracy, toast Brock’s grandfather after his passing, acknowledge the ancestral occupants of the land we live in, and then get into some QUESTIONS.

rest in peace, Papa

Also, as always, thanks to our nationally recognized “top beer bar in Oregon” beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers on SE12th and Division, now open for more than 4,000 days consecutively. They have a patio outside the place and, if you’re lucky, you might be able to catch some sports with sound.  The big stick remains indoor on the ceiling.  And, as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going!

WINTER BIKE LIGHTS
We are keeping the calendar on hiatus for now, but please do take some photos of how you are lighting your bike this winter. In line with local laws and regulations, we encourage you to add some more festive lights. If you do, take a photo, and share it with us on any of our social media, on Facebook at Sprocket Podcast, or Twitter or Instagram @SprocketPodcast and use the hashtag #sprocketwinterbike. Bring a bit of cheer to our days without much daylight.
of course we encourage you to follow any and all locally applicable regulations when riding your bicycle on public roadways.

E538 – Karen & Keith’s First Bike Camping Trip



Karen & Keith were interested in bicycle camping, and so they went out to try it for the first time!  We talk about what the experience was like from the perspective of someone who’s new to the idea.  Routefinding, traffic & road surfaces, tire sizes, tents, and camp stoves, and much more.  Follow Karen at @pogschampion and Keith at @eyeletsandoptions.

Thanks to Mountain Shop and their webinar series that gave Karen the idea to try it out herself!

Also, Brock & Aaron chat about mechanical difficulties and other mishaps.

E518 – SprocketShift Draft 2020



We joined Tim at the Pedalshift Project for an edition of his Bicycle Tour Draft, a “fantasy draft pick” exercise in which we assemble our hypothetical gear for a hypothetical tour.  As with any fantasy sport, the competition can get heated, and small things turn into big things!

Cast your vote for the winner – Tim says:
“Winner will be determined by fancy RANKED CHOICE VOTING, a super cool and superior way to vote. Click here to rank your top 4 (just drag and drop the names in order) and the winner is crowned! We’ll tally results at midnight on July 1st.  Again… you have the rest of June eastern time to vote… who has the better tour setup?”


E513 – Tim Mooney, not touring, and SprocketShift Happy Hour #5 SCHOOL NIGHT



Tim Mooney joins us as a perennial friend of the show and, of course, host of Pedalshift, the definitely best show on the internet about bicycle touring!  He recently completed a “wilderness style” no-contact tour of the C & O Trail near Washington, DC before the campsites were closed, and ruminates with us on the future of bicycle touring after a global pandemic affects us all.

We also present as the second half of this episode the SprocketShift Happy Hour #5 we conducted together right after taping the show, talking about how we’re spending our “school nights.”
