Darren is one of the foremost Touring cyclists in the US having done cycling in several countries and the US.
The following was copied diretcly from is site. I am sure you will find the show interesting and stimulating.
This site is not intended to be a rehashing of traditional bicycle touring information. Instead, it features what I consider to be a modern, lifestyle-driven, and technologically advanced twist on the way bike touring was done in the past.

Riders from around the country join us this evening to discuss the finer points of bicycle etiquette. Some of our topics include: What do you do when an unknown rider hops on your wheel and sits on for miles? What do you do when you come across road construction? Do you ride with headphones? How do you address someone riding aero bars in your group ride? How do you deal with rude drivers? What do you do when someone on your group ride gets a mechanical? Pedestrian in the bike lane? And I'm sure more will pop up as we delve into these questions.

Frank Overton - owner of Boulder's FasCat Coaching joins us this evening to discuss the 7/27 Rapha Gentleman's Race in Boulder CO. What is a Gentleman's Race? From Wikipedia:
A Gentlemen's Race is a type of unsanctioned, unmarshalled road ride established in the Pacific Northwest, USA in 2008. Inspired by the sort of riding of the Rapha Continental project, with a notion of classic bicycle races, a penchant for gravel and an appreciation of the small communities, people and places in outlying areas, the Gentlemen's Race was meant to push the boundaries typical of bicycle racing.
Taking cues from the famous running relay race Hood-to-Coast, where teams of 12 runners work together to race 187-miles from Mt. Hood to the Pacific Ocean, the Gentlemen's Race was first run around the northern base of Mt. Hood back to Portland with two checkpoints along the way to ensure fair play and safety.
Using a proprietary ranking and handicap system, teams of six riders depart with those estimated to be slowest first and the fastest departing last. Part team time triall, part Alleycat Races, part Cannonball Run, the teams must work and stay together the entire race. That factor above anything else is a great leveler for the race.
