The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 07/06/10

Air date: 
Tue, 07/06/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe talks with a group of bike-based entrepreneurs about pedaling one’s goods on the street.

Sol Pops, SoupCycle and B-Line Sustainable Urban Delivery are all Portland-based small businesses driven by a common factor: bicycles. But what’s it like to depend on human-powered transportation for your livelihood? It’s a sustainable, intimate and decidedly local form of commerce, sure, but one imagines that Januaries are likely to be extra long.

Noah Cable, Aaron Harmon and Danielle Koppel of Sol Pops, along with Jed Lazar of SoupCycle and Franklin Jones of B-Line, join Abe in studio to discuss doing business from atop a bicycle.
