E406 – Ridealong: The Ladd’s 500, 2018

We bring you audio from this year’s edition of Ladd’s 500, a relay event hosted  in a traffic circle in southeast Portland, OR.  “It’s spring, let’s do something stupid.”

Team Sprocket Podcast took 12th place in about 5 hours.  Join the fun next year!

E349 – The Ladd’s 500/Justin Patti’s Adventures

Brock & Aaron participated in The Ladd’s 500, arguably the stupidest bike event of the spring season.  And that’s why it’s so great!  Five hundred laps around a ⅕ mile circle, mostly by relay teams but also by a few individuals.  What happened?  All the stories, here.

Justin Patti is an acquaintance from Colorado who recently moved to Portland!  He’s a friend of former show guest The Professor, a bicycle enthusiast who once helped staff KRFC’s Bikes and Beer radio show, and he recently took a low-structure trip to have bicycling adventures in southern California.
