Burning Daylight with Bob Brogden
Today’s podcast is about our good friend, Bob Brogden. Bob was our original guide for the cross country tours. Bob was also the person who had our trust in getting us from Mobile, AL to Niagara Falls, NY when we toured of the Underground Railroad. You know, after recording this interview, Itza and I realized that we don’t even know Bob. Even though we’ve biked with him three times across the country, we don’t really know him. Itza and I can both remember stories about Bob that will always stick with us but they didn’t add up to us thinking we know him. Learn about Bob as we learn about him, too. You won’t be disappointed. Bob’s wealth of experience as an educator makes him the perfect person to talk about how this intersection of Bikes and Youth of Color actually makes a difference. The very reason that Spoke’n Revolutions exists

This month I’m joined by Spoke’n Revolutions Alumn, Itza Salazar-Martinez, as we interview Ife Sangode. Ife and Itza were original members of the 2011 Underground Railroad tour. In our interview, we talk to her about her involvement with SpokenRev, how she got started with it, her current activism and how one act during the tour really changed her assumptions about people. Hear how it’s undeniable that transformation occurs. One revolution at a time.

Azban the Trickster
A crafty creature, he disrupts the order of things. He uses cunning to get food, steal precious possessions, or simply causes mischief. This cool cat knows how to throw a party, have it catered, cause a fight. We ran into him and his gang this summer and lived to tell about it. (more…)

Some of the original (male) members of Spoke’n Revolutions Youth Cycling called themselves the Goon Squad. They were a close-knit group of boys that found a bond even closer after our first tour of the Underground Railroad. Here they are acting “normal” and reminding me just how fun it is to have youthful people around you. http://bikingincolor.trianglebikeworks.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Episode-3-Goon-Squad.mp3

How It All Began
Once Upon A Bike… In 2010, when we didn’t see kids (especially kids of color) on bikes in a bike friendly town we decided to do something about it. What started out as a bike ride turned out to be so much more…

It Just Changed My Life
It’s Like Family, It Just Changed My Life In my attempt to bring the beauty of biking into the hearts and minds of young brothers and sisters I became involved with the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). It was during my training in Virginia where I met two phenomenal young men who race in the middle school and high school category. Their stories just blew me away and reinforced my mission to introduce Black and Latino youth to the joys of biking.
