E220 – @dudeluna

Armando Luna is a twitter genius with his finger on the pulse of the Portland bicycle culture.  He’s a mountain bike enthusiast and a fun loving ride participant, a father and a husband, an all-around good guy.  Also: he’s a listener!  We sit down and wind a conversation through our points of commonality.

Also: Brock got some knee pain (helpful advice from BikePortland) and went to thehorse races; Aaron got seen on the trail by a mystery tweeter, and bought pants.  Path Less Pedaled gives a mountain bike review of Columbia County, OR.

Richard says teaching adults to ride bikes is “truly more rewarding than any of the other classes that we teach.”

Phoebe admires the resilience of bicyclists.

Logan corrects Brock’s misunderstanding of his locking skewers:  “we use Zefal “Lock’n Roll” skewers” and also use their locking seat post clamp. You don’t have to lock them upside down.” Also, jewelry from Leatherman.

A shout out to Richard in England!
