The Bicycle Touring Roundtable

Meetup moments

Super great to meet Aqua and Cameron for the first time and enjoy some beers with Brock, Aaron, Cat, and a whole host of others. What a fun night!

We also learned about the origin of the big stick on the ceiling… go check out the illuminating info from the creator of the The Big Stick:

  • What’s your connection to bike touring?
  • Most challenging day/moment on a bike?
  • If you couldn’t live in Portland, where would you be?
  • The place you haven’t toured yet, but want to.
  • Is bikepacking going to replace pannier-based touring?
  • Share your favorite Pedalshift moment? I mean, you listen to the show, right? 😉
