E313 – Michael & Tim Talk Touring

Show favorite Tim Mooney of the Pedalshift project and its, like, 7 podcasts, rejoins us to kick off his Oregon coastal bicycle tour, and to introduce us to our new friend Michael Riscica of Coast2Coast Bike Ride, a repository of knowledge, advice, and experiences gleaned from his three cross-continental bicycle tours, including the one in which he moved across the country and only had one small box of things mailed to him at the end.  Badass, right?  And he has a cool robot logo.
