E261a REBROADCAST – Grilled By Bike does the Oregon Outback



Team Grilled By Bike.  The Oregon Outback.  What more needs to be said? Eric, JP, Eilif, & Ross party responsibly across the uninhabited lands of eastern Oregon, encountering mud, rain, fallen trees, and windfall burn barrels, while engaging in the throwing of sharp implements and the playing of table tennis.  How did it go down? They tell us.

Find Grilled By Bike on instagram.

For field audio of the adventure produced by Eric Ivy, listen to:
E261b Pt.1 Team Grilled By Bike: Exploring Unsharted Territory – The intrepid crew rides out of Klamath, plays some ping pong, watches a thunderstorm, chops down trees, interviews other bikepackers, and hangs out in a bike shop.
E261c – Pt.2 Team Grilled By Bike: Exploring Unsharted Territory – The crew interviews a long-time bikepacker, plays some more ping pong, throws the tomahawk, hangs around a campfire with some other Outback riders, and makes banana boats.
E261d – Pt.3 Team Grilled By Bike: Exploring Unsharted Territory – The crew eats all the queso, finds the endpoint at the Columbia River, talks to more bikepackers, makes camp one last time, and Eric returns to Portland with the record button still activated to talk to even more people.

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.

E453 – The Open Road with Greg & Emily (full gameplay)



Emily & Greg could have spent Valentine’s Day anywhere, but they chose to spend it with us playing a bicycle touring themed board game!  The Open Road is a fantastically good time, and we’re including the entire gameplay in this week’s episode because it was just that much fun.  Guthrie’s love for bananas and Aaron’s whole 30 obsession both make appearances, along with much more.

E435 – E204 REBROADCAST Anna Olsen & Justin Miles: We’re New Here



Our most significant podcast ever!  This content was originally published in October 2014, and it’s so much fun we’re bringing it back! Listen to the flirtation happening between Aaron & Anna when they were still passing notes in the podcasting studio. We’ll be back in a week with another new studio show featuring Aaron & Guthrie.

Anna Olsen used to be a podcast listener from Oklahoma. Now, she’s a guest!  I guess she’ll never have to listen again.  We’re glad to welcome her to Portland after an education at United Bicycle Institute where she learned to be a bicycle mechanic.  Her coworker Justin Miles joins us as well.

Also: Drew lends the rain cape! Brock gives it a first go; the Transportastic studio opener is on 10/25 6:30pm at IPRC! Aaron’s still on drugs, and does a very frugal thing followed by a rather infrugal thing.

Mail

Chris in Chico sends a link to a creative Latvian demonstration of how much traffic cycling can reduce.

Chris is also a new monthly donor! So is Dan G.!

Kurt, whom Brock met in Copperfield on the OR/ID border, sends in pictures of his full suspension mountain bike.

JohnnyK is freaked out by clowns, maybe because of scooby doo’s ghost clown episode.

Ethan G asks how to best tell meddling, uninvited advisors to your bicycling style to “piss off.”

E425 – Resiliency By Bike with Mike Cobb



This week, Mike Cobb tells us about his departure from an ordinary bike mechanic’s life into a quest to design and outfit a bike that can respond to crisis situations.  How do you mount a windmill to a bike? And why? Well, when the grid goes down, you know who to call. Mike details his outrageous cycle tour through the American southwest and what he terms “radical disassembly” to make a cargo bike fit into a prescribed box for shipping.  Among other things!

As always, thanks to our drink sponsor The Beer Mongers & our generous Patreon donors.

Also, Bicycle/Race, Adonia Lugo’s “…unforgettable picture of Los Angeles—and the United States—from the perspective of two wheels.” is available from Microcosm Publishing and wherever you get your books.
