E440 – Portland Street Medicine

Portland Street Medicine is in the house! We take a moment to catch up with a new (to Portland) method of preventative care for Portlands most vulnerable population, and how it brings together bikes, caregivers, and those in need. Also a special co-host appearance by Tom McTighe while Aaron is away!

Check out Portland Street Medicine here.

Aaron’s note: we’ve tried but had scheduling conflicts, and I’m not above using this public forum as a way to beg them to come on the show.

Also from Tim Mooney: Bird Says New Scooter Regulations Make It ‘Impossible’ To Serve D.C.
Aaron’s note: while this only affects Washington DC, expect similar anti-scooter legislation to come through other scooter-served cities like PDX

Dan Gebhart (who’s a time traveler) sent tweet –
Bike errand tip: roll up a couple of reusable shopping bags and shove them in a bottle cage. Need to stop at the store, but don’t have your panniers with you? No problem! Plop them on your porteur rack, bungee ’em to the back rack, or just sling ’em over a shoulder.

Use a spare bottle cage as a bag holder
