E548 – Caroline Burrows, Poet By Bike

This episode we talk to the bicycling poet, Caroline Burrows!  We talk about bicycle touring around the UK, and France, her family connection to touring and her grandfather’s influence, and how, since lockdown, she has been exploring her own area.  Also, is Bristol a nexus for generating famous people?  Find Caroline Burrows, VerseCycle, on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube

We also get into a lengthy discussion of pets at the end of the show.

Also, as always, thanks to our nationally recognized “top beer bar in Oregon” beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers on SE 12th and Division, now open for more than 4,000 days consecutively. They have a patio outside the place and, if you’re lucky, you might be able to catch some sports with sound.  The big stick remains indoor on the ceiling.  And, as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going!

We are keeping the calendar on hiatus for now, but please do take some photos of how you are lighting your bike this winter. In line with local laws and regulations, we encourage you to add some more festive lights. If you do, take a photo, and share it with us on any of our social media, on Facebook at Sprocket Podcast, or Twitter or Instagram @SprocketPodcast and use the hashtag #sprocketwinterbike. Bring a bit of cheer to our days without much daylight.
of course we encourage you to follow any and all locally applicable regulations when riding your bicycle on public roadways.
