Will the third time be a charm? Join Chris, Dave, Evan & Uncle Gomez in the Electronic Chicklet Studios and see. It’s the Arbor Day Special Edition of the Black Ribbon Bike Hour.
We have Surly Brand Ambassador, Aaron Domeier, commenting on his recent trip to the east coast on a demo tour – the MPLS bike scene – and music from his band Hrad Valias?
Veteran of Two Surly Demo Tour(s) of Duty – Aaron tells us about what he’s learned about the seedy underbelly of the bike world in his travels?
Then we talk about the Minneapolis Bike Scene and ask – weirdest thing? – coolest thing? – best event?
