Listen to the show (mp3, 13.2M)

BikePortland has created a forum for people of all bikey stripes to come together and talk about issues, share information and culture. People may not always agree, but I think that's a very good thing. Jonathan talks about the success of his site, how he has filled a niche in the bike communications network and plans for the future (all of Oregon?).
