Jeff Mapes, who is the senior political reporter for Oregon Public Radio, was in town for the RNC and I had an opportunity to sit down with him to catch up about cycling – which is his “other” work. He is the author of the 2009 book “Pedalig Revolution” and we get to talk all-things-bike. Then, in a tribute to bike shop owner, father, husband, and all around amazing guy Jeff Archer, who was hit and killed by a drunk driver while crossing the street this week, we will be airing my conversation with him from December, 2012.
