E483 – REBROADCAST 2011 Crater Lake/Carter Lark Tour



Aaron, Guthrie, and friends spent this weekend doing the Crater Lake rim ride in southern Oregon – they’ll share details of that trip later, and in honor of this we present Aaron’s first appearance on the podcast from 2011 in which he, producer Brock, and Adele share their thoughts on their grueling 2011 tour to the same place.  See you next week for a new studio show!

This week we speak with Team Sincerity, the group of people who climbed several mountains with bikes and kids to get to Crater Lake, and all in the name of good fun.  Aaron Flores & Adele Dittus join us in studio, and Adam & Jodie Rust phone from Seattle.  We discuss: beer, soda, and pigeonholing, the origin of Team Sincerity, Warmshowers.org hosts Roger & May, road magic and generosity at Hobo Camp/Club Hobo, sickness and the hill climb from hell, Xanterra’s poor customer service, and many other things.

UPDATE 9/29/11Photos from the trip, which should have been shared some time back!.

Drinks
Brock & Adele drink the fantastically bad Game Day Ice from 7-Eleven, and Aaron drinks a Henry Weinhard’s Root Beer.

Guthrie Straw grew up in Oregon and leads bicycle tours with Cycle Portland Bike Tours when he’s not enjoying longer bicycle tours of his own.  After he and Brock met during the Filmed By Bike jury screenings, they decided to record a show together, which also led to some interesting discussion about Ketchikan, Alaska and outdoor leadership dynamics.

Also: fossil fuel divestment (OPB & Alison Wiley), former co-host Brandon’s new business Rolling Oasis (now defunct), pedestrian assumptions & motorized vehicle proliferation.
