Here’s hoping episode 500 is as good as episode 400 was.

Shoulda called it the squeaky wheel

More radio dramas! I do get all my best rumors here.

CaityC ,

Happy to see you back!

Was getting a bit worried there, given that there was such a long time without a pod. It’s funny — even though I’m no kind of racer, truly not even any kind of rider except on my daughter’s old Raleigh attached to my Saris trainer, and don’t really understand most of what you are talking about (though learning), this is one of my favorite pods.

The only thing that I’ve got in common with you all is that in the mid or late 80s, a boyfriend who worked at SF’s Lincoln Cyclery gave me a rainbow painted Klein. Which LOL I rode on paths in Golden Gate Park and on the road up in far western Sonoma County.

Decades later when moving cross country, I gave it to my bike shop in exchange for boxing up the 2 family bikes and shipping them from Marin to NYC. It was in great condition and I liked them so I was aware that I was probably giving them a pretty good to maybe even great deal.
