aaron brockphoto by adele dittus

This week we catch up on Brock and Aaron. Both arriving home from their prospective trips abroad. Brock talks about diving into the deep end of the pool that is Mtn Bike Oregon and Aaron wonders if he could’ve got a bubble machine.

Welcome home Brock, and happy birthday!

Thanks to our beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers (don’t forget to look for the photoset of the cyclocross team), and, as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going!

 

note: there was some software issues. Aaron lost all the original audio and had to use our backup file. He didn’t have much time to edit it, but he got something resembling an episode.

IMG_2209Yes, I know it’s July. But it’s not like we here at Sprocket Headquarters have any sense of time. I mean, how long did we keep on that #boatmonth thing?

Anyway, This is the third (and final?) installment of auditory stimulus from our adventuring two.
