The first Pedalshift tour of spring 2015 is right around the corner, so be sure to stay tuned for extra podcasts coming your way to document the trip. We’ve got followup on some past topics, more tire talk, a featured tour of epic proportions and a brand new bike touring story. Onward!
Reach out to the show via email, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Don’t forget to join the newsletter too and make sure you do that before Wednesday the 20th, because on Thursday newsletter subscribers get access to the Tour Journals feed that cranks up on the 23rd with daily reports from my bike tour from DC to Pittsburgh!
Who else has some early bike touring overnight stories to share? Send your pics, audio or a quick tweet – all welcome. Email the show firstname.lastname@example.org or call the brand new Pedalshift voicemail line at (202) 930-1109.
Shows every day the last week in May! Newsletter subscribers will get info on a special daily Tour Journals pod for my C&O and GAP ride. Subscribe to the newsletter before the ride and you’ll get an email with the scoop on how to listen.
More tire talk!
- Tire liners
- I vote meh on goo in tubes
- Tubeless? Not sure if that’s my bag
- Wider tires and playing with inflation (see episode 019)
- The devils – radial wires and goatheads
- My preference: Schwalbe Marathon Supreme (road) and pro (trails or gravel) – “no flats on the entire Pacific coast”
Bike Touring Story
Thank you Samuel P. Taylor… whoever you are
Sometimes the most interesting part of the ride is the last night before the end. Often that happens at the state park a half day’s ride from San Francisco in Lagunitas, California…
The Pedalshift Project theme is America courtesy of Jason Kent off his self-titled solo album. Check out his band Sunfields‘ new release, Habitat, wherever cool music resides. And hey, new video for Ghost!
