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.

Short Description: 
The Bike Show tackles how to get teens cycling and visits with young adults who inspire riding.

This month the KBOO Bike Show explores the less-traveled path of teen cycling. Often, when kids hit middle and high-school they tend to shy away from cycling-- and towards the right of passage of the driver's license. We'll be welcoming three organizations and their members that are reaching out to teen cyclists-- particularly low-income and minority-- to get them hooked into the wonder and sport of cycling. The Bike Show welcomes back the Oregon Bicycle Racing Association's High School Cyclocross Program, the newly formed Major Taylor Educational Program (both of Portland) and ElGroupo (of Tucson). We'll discuss their different programs and hear directly from the participants what they think might get more young adults on bikes.

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.

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.
