Also: Brock forgets to time his transit trip correctly, but finalizes his move out of the apartment, and Aaron does an “endo” when his pannier slips into his spokes!  Along with Kick Ass Oregon History’s summer road trip & Pedalpalooza!

Ethan from Energy Cycle shares “an event at Hardywood Brewery where we had two spin sessions (40 cyclists total) on our energy producing bike trainers. We harnessed the energy to provide power to the beer brewing equipment. Fun times!  The beer we created was called “Amperage Ale”, and was quite tasty.”

Former guest Diane from TriMet shares:
“Comto Oregon is putting on this bike safety event on June 18.”
