The Bike Show
Whether you haven't pushed a pedal since you were a kid or logged thousands of miles in the past year, we present something for every listener.
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.
Join us live the first Wednesday of every month from 11:00 am to noon, or listen anytime at BikeShow.PortlandTransport.com.

Welcome to our holiday show! It's better to give than receive so with that in mind we'll be interviewing the Community Cycling Center about the Holiday Bike Drive, taking a sneak peak with Elly Blue at the upcoming BikeCraft, and talking with our very first guest host, Janis McDonald, about how to pick out a great bike or cycling stocking stuffer for your favorite cyclist.
Post election woes and victories. Guest Karl Rohde from the BTA discusses current pro-bicycle legislation, what passed, what didn't pass and what's coming down the bike lane.
Portland's bike economy is surging. Tori and Carl talk about the bike industry in our region with guests Jennifer Nolfi (Portland Development Commission), Jessica Roberts (Alta Planning), and Matt Cardinal from Signal Cycles.
Hosts Tori and Ayleen interview Karol Collymore, a participant in the Low-Car Diet program, a program that encourages people to reduce their dependence on the personal car. They will also talk about the opening of Cyclocross season with Kris Schamp.
Is there a war on wheels? Is there any difference between a "crash" and an "accident?" The August KBOO Bike Show will address recent media coverage of bike-related issues in Portland. Guests Amy Ruiz, Portland Mercury News Editor, and Jonathan Maus of BikePortland.org join hosts Ayleen Crotty and Carl Larson to analyze recent incidents, the resulting media coverage, and its influence on public perceptions. Portland's streets are famously friendly to bicyclists. Can the same be said about Portland's news sources?
Hosts Ayleen and Tori spoke with guests Alison Hill-Braves from the Community Cycling Center, Janis McDonald from the City of Portland, Transportation Options and Barb Grover from the Bike Gallery about a variety of issues related to women who ride bikes.
