E295 – Mariana Mo & Nathan Jones: A Year of Thursday Night Rides

Nathan Jones & Mariana Mo started a weekly bike ride through Portland a year ago.  People keep joining in droves, and the event has been happening every week since then.  And it’s just a positive, relaxed bike ride without any frills.  What happens and how does it work?  Are there rules?  We ask all the questions.

Thanks to our generous sponsor The Beer Mongers and our Patreon donors that keep us going!
