Last summer my friend Boaz invited me to come and be on his talk show.
But this wasn’t just any talk show. No, Boaz created the Pedal Powered Talk Show, essentially, a talk show on wheels. Boaz takes around his cargo bike, sets up shop in all kinds of places, and interviews all kinds of interesting types. So I was honored when he asked me to be a part.
The night in question, the Pedal Powered Talk Show was a part of a live event put on with NW Documentary. I was there to talk about my book, The Culinary Cyclist, and Boaz asked if I would be willing to make a smoothie on stage.
Anyone out there ever made a smoothie on stage? No, I didn’t think so. It’s not really what you usually get asked to do. But I said yes.
This of course entailed me bringing my own blender, which I diligently packed up in my backpack before riding over to the event. Backpack filled with kale and a blender. That’s true Culinary Cyclist style.
Fortunately, the Pedal Powered Talk Show team got the entire thing on camera and is now available for your viewing pleasure.
It should also be noted that immediately after filming the intro to this episode, Boaz got into a bike crash. Thankfully, he and his awesome cargo bike survived just fine. Maybe it had something to do with his super-powered green smoothie he just drank.

Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.

Life is simple really. Take a moment to slow down. Appreciate the present. Celebrate in the small things.
Standing on Pont des Arts I captured this shot, a woman cycling in the afternoon sun. Maybe she was on her way to meet a friend, maybe she was on her way home, or maybe she was just outside taking in the summer day. Whatever she was doing, it was beautiful.
Love bikes? You’ll love The Culinary Cyclist, a cookbook for anyone that believes that life is better spent on two wheels.
Bike store, bikes parked, bike graffiti… there’s no better city for bike love than Amsterdam.
Sometimes you feel like you are in the midst of a Portlandia episode.
