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.


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.


E261a – Team 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.

Stay tuned this week for field recordings of the crew’s adventure, curated by Eric Iverson.  Find Grilled By Bike on instagram.

E259 – Tim Mooney



Tim Mooney from Pedalshift is back in town! Strangely, it’s seemingly impossible to get him into the same room as both Aaron AND Brock, so he muses on the possibility that they are the same person.  We are joined by Adele Dittus as a cohost and discuss Portlandy things, long bike rides, and the definition of #notcheating when it comes to adventures.

E257b – Todd the Truck Driver (and Sydney!)



Todd the Truck Driver is a fan of the show and was moving his daughter Sydney into her new home in Portland, so we invited them to join us for the studio session this week!  We talk trucking turkey with Todd and explore the world of freight transport, including how he gets around when his driving hours are up!  Hint: it includes a bicycle.
