Bike Life is a big bucket for all things biking that are not directly related to a geographical area or a particular ride. You will find stories about good bike karma, travel, and personal tidbits from us here at Dirty Freehub. (Also, we are looking for a lead sponsor for this series. Listen to the intro of “ELV and Those Gnomes” for the concept. Please email us if interested.)
When someone says “wooden bike”, what do you think of? Before I started talking to my friend Sam who rides a wooden gravel bike, I always thought wooden bikes were either a piece of art, some strange gimmick or maybe a child’s strider bike.
In this episode we talk with Scott Campbell who is the founder of Celilo Cycles here in Oregon and their specialty is wooden bikes.
Today we will be talking about cycling infrastructure, community, accountability and involvement. Our special guest is Bend lawyer and cyclist Peter Werner. This is a must listen to for all cyclists, including gravel cyclists, as we sometimes venture out onto the pavement in our rides.
Meet Kerry Werner, a cyclocross pro that is worth keeping an eye out in the CX world. Kerry has competed in multiple World Championships for the US National Team and won his first elite title in 2019 at the Pan Am Champs. Although cyclocross racing is a bike part of Kerry’s cycling career, today we get to chat with Kerry both in and out of racing and tips for planning for a big cycling adventure ride.
Hear Phil’s unbelievable story of getting his bike stolen from the back of his car in an Ikea parking lot in Portland and the resulting good karma!
Hear the story of what it takes to get started, van selection and other Vanlife adventures and challenges. Michelle and Gatum purchased a used Sprinter van and have been living and riding out of it for the last year. We think they know a bit about the adventure of vanlife living!
Find out what goes into gravel route development and what it’s like to do a Dirty Freehub exploratory route. Sometimes all goes well, other times it is an adventure and maybe even epic. Special guests Michelle and Gatum share their stories with us!
In this episode, we speak with the founder of Abbey Tools. Learn about how they got started, what it takes to make great bike tools, and how they came up with the name.
