We take an in-depth look at cycling and transportation as they affect our everyday lives, with live interviews of newsmakers in recreation, transportation, politics, business and finance, equity, public health, economic development, and the very special culture of bike fun that thrives in Portland.

On the September Bike Show, Bikes and the Law. Have you ever just been riding along, minding your own business on your commute to work or ride on the weekend and had a car pass you way, too, close? Or have you been driving and passed a cyclist with what you thought was plenty of room only to be met at the next stoplight or in your rear view mirror with a few choice words or gestures? Well today our guests Christopher Stanton, co-creator of C3FT, and Officer Robert Simmons of the Chatanooga Police Department  will share with you a whole new technology that could change perceptions from both angles.

The Life Cycle of Cylocross with Laurence Malone (the Godfather of CX), Ryan Trebone and Sue Butler

Program:

Short Description: 
The Life Cycle of Cylocross with Laurence Malone (the Godfather of CX), Ryan Trebone and Sue Butler
While here in Portland we have one of the most avid and highly participated cyclocross racing scenes in the world, overseas the sport is for beer swilling spectators who are as passionate about their pros as American's are about football. This is just one of many differences in cyclocross in the US verses the European circuit where the sport was born.

This month the Bike Show explores the life cycle of Cyclocross in the United States. From the birth of cyclocross in the 70's, we'll speak with Laurence Malone-- a.k.a. The Godfather of Cyclocross racing-- about the sport's humble origins in the us and what it was like to be the lone American on the starting line overseas in the early years.

Biking with Kids

In 2007, I was privileged to bicycle 4500 miles with 11-yr-old Tala, her two-yr-old twin sisters, and their mother. We rode from Corvallis, OR, to Washington, DC, by way of San Bernadino, New Orleans, and St. Louis for peace and sustainability. It was wonderful fun.

Prior to that I raised my own daughter with a kid stoker kit on a Burley tandem. Biking with kids is ideal.

Go, Granny!!!

Human Electric Hybrid Bikes

I'm a bike commuter and I ride an Optibike, an electric assist bicycle. My bike is only one of two in Oregon but it is only one of many types being used here in Portland . In fact, Portland has its own Ebike industry and the number of E bikes stores is expanding, including Bike Gallery. I think this technology will expand the bike community and should be addressed by the KBOO Bike Show. Take a look at the Optibike web site and if you'd like to see one, contact me.
