E381 – Nathan Jones Races Around Earth

Nathan Jones hasn’t been on the show in a while, and that’s because he’s been busy riding 18,000 miles around the planet.  This weekend he gave a presentation at Bike Gallery’s Westmoreland location about the whole trip, including passage through monastery-filled eastern Europe, assembling a bike alone at 4am in an Indian airport, viewing a piece of Skylab at a truck stop in Australia, and letting the wind blow him around for a while in America’s heartland.  He also discussed Mike Hall’s legacy and how he carried Mike’s bicycle tire pump the entire way.  We’re sharing audio from the entire 2 hour presentation here! Thanks to Bike Gallery Westmoreland for hosting this event!  Visit their new location at 6717 SE Milwaukie Ave, Portland, OR 97202.
