E489 – Emily & RJ Bike Loudly

EmilyRJ are with Portland advocacy group BikeLoudPDX and join to discuss their experience and passion for the work and action of making their city safer and more effective for all citizens, including what to do when you realize you’re telling starry-eyed upstarts to “take their enthusiasm elsewhere” and how to stay grounded over time.
