Ride Bikes Radio 59: #RideEveryDay
A quick and short show for you guys this week. It's not that we haven't recorded anything, because we have. There is a zoom video on the Stupid Facebook page and, well, another thing in the bin. You see, the last show we recorded was completely scrambled by the process I used to use to make the show. So, no Brian this time, instead you get me talking about #RideEveryDay for May, an update on the Gravity and, like we like to do, a trip through the Strava Club. I owe you a few links: * My chain ring - 40t, red. Because red * SE Speedster Tires * Pedals - I love these and currently have red and green * BikesDirect Gravity 29er SS - Again, if you are wanting to buy this bike, I would contact them to check first as it is not listed on the main MTB page. Did you smash all of your records in May? Post that to instagram and tag @RideBikesRadio so we can spread the awesome! Thanks for bugging us for a show! We noticed, we also notice when you share! That helps more than you know. If you don't think we are worthy, by all means, let us know by emailing feedback at ride bikes radio dot com.

Ride Bikes Radio 55: Sometimes I take Awkward Selfies
A little bit about me, a little bit more about me, and I really hate changing tires/tubes. If you are following along in the RBR Chat, you'll see that I have already corrected this, but boy was it frustrating! The other frustration is actually switching to clipless. I come clean as to why I haven't and Brian schools me on getting set up. Bike and Beer news we think you will like: * Oskar Blues supports Can'd Aid * Ducati Electric Bike? * Denver snow plows hit the bike lanes * The coolest helmet ever! * Boulder Beer scaling back * Scotch - A Golden Dream documentary. This was super interesting and fun to watch! Skipping beer for Scotch (see above) and making a pass through the Strava Club.

Ride Bikes Radio 52: It's the Zima of 2019
BIG week! Brian being basic after clocking serious miles this week (and number 3 in elevation) and me still amazed at how much you guys can ride! Playing the Strava Club home game is always fun. Besides that, we talked about a few other things: * Wahoo Element Radar Integration with the Garmin Varia that we talked about in Episode 2 * Cincinnati FD using bikes * GiddyUp! Film Tour In other news, we will have stickers very soon (for reals) and other merch will be coming. We are trying to go beyond coffee mugs and shirts and will keep you guys posted for sure!
Aug 18, 2019
Ride Bikes Radio 51: In Therapy Forever
Finally able to get Brian back! Besides catching up and discussing goals and riding bikes, like we like to do, we also make a pass through the Strava Club. Besides that stuff, a little talk about riding with strangers, Wahoo cycling computers vs. using the phone. You can click this link for Wahoo refurbed! The biggest take away, I think, is having a bunch of routes you can pick from to keep you on the pedals! I am in the process of getting some RBR branded stuff ready for you guys. Stickers, for sure, are coming very very soon! More as they become available, keep an eye on the socials and here for details! Token to be removed later: GHi32zosFFVKhSDzbilu

Ride Bikes Radio 50: Let's Try this Again
How about we take a few minutes to talk about bikes? First up, we have Strava breaking with with ReLive, or ReLive breaking up with Strava? Read these and let us know what you think: * From ReLive * From Strava Besides that, I am suffering from N+1 so bad right now it is not even funny. Go ahead and check out the latest bike that I covet and will probably have in my stable before the end of the year. I know it's not from an LBS, but it fits in my budget and in what I am trying to do with it. What else do you recommend that does not cost $1K or more? Comments are open! Go nuts! Finally, a pass thru the Strava Club and a little beer talk. Play along with the home game via the Untappd app. Your patience is appreciated. I know you guys like this show. Hell, I like this show. Life gets in the way sometimes and everyone just runs out of time. That said, like I said, I really like this show and will be trying my damnedest to keep up making 2 new shows a month. Who's with me?!?!

Fred Called Us Out
Fred Called Us out Catching up! I understand it's been a while, but weather in Arizona has sucked and I bought a freaking house! Apologies for the delay, but I do promise we will be getting back to it! Links: * The most ridiculous comments opposing bike lanes * Don't Confront Motorists * Snooty Peloton Images A quick pass through the Strava Club and beer as you expect, plus a minor detour into a bottle of wine; a 1979 Opus One. It was amazing and I acquired it upon the passing of my grandparents. You can read more about that on my blog. And do not forget about White Roof Radio. If you like a good car show, I think this one is pretty amazing. If you like MINI Coopers, you get a double bonus because it's all we really talk about it. And, that show makes this one happen, so thanks to them! I have made some changes to the site. Nothing earth shattering, but when you see it, it's not just you. Comments are open BTW!

Ride Bikes Radio 48: I Am Becoming Old People
Ride Bikes Radio 48 - I Am Becoming Old People First show of 2019 and we are talking about folding bicycles, a kick ass LBS experience, the Specialized recall and electric bikes. Besides all of that, a few listener shout-outs and we are looking for some specific feedback to start the new year. * Specialized Recall - Look for the post for January 9th and it is affecting a few different models. * The Strava Club * Rad Stop Ride Shop Facebook page. This shop is legit! I know I said Rad Power Bikes repeatedly, but I was wrong. It is Rad Stop Ride Shop! * Electric Bike Lawshttp://peopleforbikes.org/our-work/e-bikes/policies-and-laws/) * Richard Wezensky provided this weeks show art! Ok, so, how did you find out about Ride Bikes Radio? Did you come from White Roof Radio or find us another way? And, with Episode 50 coming up soon, what do you guys think about a live show?

Review: Specialized 2018 Diverge e5 Sport
A few minutes of me talking about the new bike and how awesome it is! You can read more about it at specialized.com. The way it handles, the way it feels, how comfortable it is.

Plus beer!

For those of you that aren't playing the home game, I did, in fact, have 2 bicycles stolen out of my garage. I tell the story plus show you a couple that are in contention for my new daily driver. They both tick the budget box and 1 ticks all the boxes! * Specialized Allez * Specialized Diverge e5 If you missed the high speed run on the Salt Flats on our Facebook page, you can check it out here.

Starting off talking about really fast bikes on the Salt, Brian getting to ride bikes in a super rad location, you guys killing it (again) in the Stava Club and finishing with beer!

Excuse the extra background noise. Brian's normal mic was still in a box. Oh, yea, we get Brian this week, fresh from his move to North Bend, Washington.

Ride Bikes Radio 42: 36c to F
Joined by listener Danyelle from Canada this week as a special treat. We have a great conversation talking about upgrades, how cool it is to work in a bike shop and how much we both dislike the smell of pot. Finally, what not to do when drinking, including not signing up for a triathlon! So, all in all, a pretty rounded show. If you are wondering what else she listens to, Danyelle really likes the Trainer Road Podcast for lots of great information and tips. I did notice a bunch of you last week caught the show over on Facebook because I didn't get it into your feed correctly. In case that is your default, remember, the hot tip is to subscribe on your mobile computer device that way you get the show automatically!

Ride Bikes Radio 31: We Circled the Wagons
Bonus show, kinda, for you guys this week. In our attempt to back on track, someone had to double up, and I picked RBR, so you have that going for you, which is nice. In this week's episode, I tease Brian for needing a larger saddle (and possibly a trike) after that 200 mile ride he did last month, then we both get up on the RBR soap box for a bit of ranting about professional cycling and safety. We did base these on a few stories, here are the links. * Sammy Sanchez Doping * Get Cops to pay attention to your ride videos * New Belgium Brewery buys Magnolia Brewing Plus a few (ahem) beers for us to talk about for you guys.

Brian lays down some good rules to follow for us about this too and I have a few tips (links below) for kit and snacks. But, the big reason we are talking today is because Brian rode a double century! That's more than 200 miles (or 322km) and he did that in a single day! He gave us a recap of his experience that I think you guys are going to enjoy listening too. And you know we are going to be talking more about this in upcoming shows for those of you that are looking to get into riding some larger miles! Finally, check out album art!

King of the Southwest, aka Don 'don't call me' Burnside, and I, the man with the same inverted initials, busted out edition 25 of the Zen-like Ride Bikes Radio.

Ride Bikes Radio #06: Christmas in July
We have a really fun show for you this week. We talk about cards in spokes, I let Brian talk about the Tour for 1 minute and we talk about the El Camino of Bikes; the Kona Ute.

Besides that, we take a trip down memory lane in the shape of last week's Facebook posts: * The average cyclist gets 84 MPG * The Bicycle Kite * Richard's Kona Ute And from the Dept. of Ridiculous, there is the shotgun bike alarm.

Nice to see so many states with laws on the books. Disappointed in the states that do not (:cough cough:Texas:cough cough:). Shout-outs to our newest listeners in France, Germany, the UK and Angola! Thanks for checking us out guys and gals! Also a shout to the The Sprocket Podcast, who gave us a nice mention during their latest episode. If you aren't already listening, you should check them out!
