E082a – Brock & Brandon Wrap Up for Summer

Brock & Brandon go through the emails to make sure everyone gets included before a summer hiatus of pre-recorded interviews.  We look forward to resuming our “live” talk show format after returning to the studio in September.  Hope everyone has many grand adventures in the meantime!

Don’t forget to gird your loins for the first Portland Zombie Ride, a Pedalpalooza event beginning at Velo Cult on Sunday, June 17 2012 at 10:30am!  The zombie apocalypse will not be motorized…  Also, the TRANSPORTland Disaster Relief Trials will be happening at the same location that day!  We’ll talk about that on Monday night with the crew that organized the event!

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).

Bike Safe Portland wallet-sized accident reports are available now in Portland bicycle shops near you!  Thanks to Josh Zisson from Bike Safe Boston and the Bike Safe Nation project.
