We got to hang out with Jenn Kriske of @machinesforfreedom shortly after the news dropped of their partnership with Specialized earlier this month. She gave us a cool glimpse into the brand that has intentionally broken down the stereotypes around body image, gender, and age in cycling. Have a listen to the history of this women-run business and what is coming up for them next!
We're back and all three of us in one episode! We talked to one of the most creative people we know, Becca Schepps of Boulder, CO back in March while she was visiting Portland en route to LA Sweat team camp. We discuss bikes, branding, fashion and one of her many jobs as owner of Mortal Kombucha. You don't want to miss this episode! Thanks for hanging out, Becca! xo
We got to hang out with the creator of @ultraviolet racing, @joleneholland. She is ubiquitous with Austin racing and also just earned her graduate degree in Community and Regional planning and is focusing her work on bike transportation planning. Jolene embodies inclusivity & positivity, and her enthusiasm for women in sport is infectious. We're pretty sure you'll be able to hear her smile on this pod!
We got to hang out with Austin's very own Russell Pickavance. He's the owner of @cycleast – a cool, inclusive bike shop sharing a space with @fasttrack coffee (pro tip: you can get breakfast tacos before your ride!). Russell tells us about his previous nomadic life filled with poetry and philosophy; and about his passion for creating meaningful community space through bikes.
We sat down with Ian Dille at his Flo studio in Austin, Texas just after SXSW. It's a great conversation where we discuss Flo, deals in bike racing and Portland's #4 ranking in Bicycling's Best Bike Cities. Gasp!
Check out and subscribe to www.flobikes.com as they just announced they are broadcasting the Giro! We finally have access to a channel stateside where we can legitimately watch bike races!
We talk about the Time's Up movement or as Jen calls it, “It's about time” and life in Hollywood. We felt like it deserved it's own episode. Thanks for listening!
We Got to Hang Out with LA's own Jen Whalen (@jennysayyes) at Golden Saddle Cyclery. We talk about the good stuff; California Girls, riding her bike across the country, libido, comedy and her current relationship with bikes. Bonus sound bites by Kyle Kelley and friends. Thanks Jen, we think you're pretty radical <3
Special thanks to Free Public Wines (www.freepublicwines.com) for the special delivery all the way down to Los Angeles. That little can of goodness fits perfectly in a jersey pocket 🙂
The unedited, live version of our time on stage at SXSW! Join us as we chat with Ted King, to learn about his path to becoming a world tour professional cyclist, discuss his love for maple syrup and his business, Untapped. We are long time fans of Ted King and love that we got to talk adventures in food, cycling and the culture that surrounds it!
JoAnn Schinderle joins us for this episode to discuss her path to stand up comedy, the culture of comedy in Portland and her own observations of what it's like to be a stand up comedian. She was named Portland's Funniest by the Willamette Week in 2017 and a finalist at Portland's Funniest Person's Contest hosted by Helium Comedy Club in 2017. Go see her show, Control Yourself at the Alberta Street Pub every Sunday night! Thanks JoAnn <3
Listen in to hear Leah Benson of Gladys Bikes and Erik Tonkin of Sellwood Cycle Repair discuss topics such as business, bikes, feminism and inclusivity. Meanwhile, Annalisa attempts to keep them on task. Enjoy this episode and thanks for hanging out!
