E380 – Robert Rides Recumbent Relentlessly



In the studio today we have Robert Weaver who rode his recumbent bike across the land.  He gives us the lowdown on being closer to the ground, and what he learned as he crossed the continent!  We’re glad he got in touch on his way to the west coast.  Follow Robert at whatifitspossiblenow.com

As always, Thank you to our drink sponsor The Beer Mongers for providing libations and to all of our Patreon donors who keep us going.

E378 – Donnie & Kevin Play In The Dirt



Kevin Prentice has joined us before – he’s one of the geniuses at Ride With GPS, an indispensable tool for planning and having active adventures.  He brings his friend Donnie Kolb from oregonbikepacking.com onto the show to talk about adventures in dirt and how to get into some fun trouble in the woods or the desert.  Some of you might remember Donnie from the Oregon Outback route or his former project VeloDirt; we’re excited to finally get to meet him.

Not mentioned on the show, but a must-see: Donnie Kolb tells his Steens Mountain breakdown story at Live The Revolution 2016.

E375 – Swift Summit 200/100



Trevor Spangle organized a new event in Lebanon, Oregon this year, the Swift Summit 200/100, one that he described as “part brevet, part gran fondo, part self-supported endurance road race.”  We host a speed-dating-styled roundup of 7 participants on their experiences with the event, including hills, gravel, climbing, heat exhaustion, vomit, and, of course, successful completion.  Many thanks to all of the people who came in to share their stories!  This is definitely one to catch next year.

Also, join You Hear So Deep (A Swift Summit NW Bicycle Community Campout) on October 15 2017!

E374 – Biketalk 88.1 & Bikabout



Galen Mook & Jess “DJ Hot Mic” are hosts on Cambridge’s BikeTalk 88.1, a live radio show broadcasting every other Wednesday at 8pm EST on FM & web.  They’ve been visiting Oregon’s prime locations including Bend, Hood River, & Portland.  Small catch: it’s been really smoky here due to some cataclysmic wildfires – they haven’t seen any mountains yet.  Enter Bikabout.com: their friends Megan (who’s been on the show before) and Kyle Ramey got out of dodge for awhile to avoid the smoke from the Eagle Creek Fire, and dropped into the studio as well.  We catch up with them and find out what’s next for the bicycle travel guide website and the people behind it.

(if you missed the BikeTalk 88.1 episodes Brock was on, hear them: in studio on bike fun, and call-in about 2017 Biketown vandalism)

E369 – Wayne, Maria, Annalisa



Wayne Norman is a long-time donor to our show with a road trip happening now and an incredible story of recovering from a health scare to keep on moving from Adventure To Adventure!
Maria Schur is a friend who has been on our show several other times.  We invited her in to describe her involvement in the Swift Summit 200/100 and how she wants to approach the event.
Annalisa took a cross country bicycle tour while taking photographs & managing type 1 diabetes, and ended up staying with Guthrie who happens to be her warmshowers.org host. Check out her portrait series at 4000milesofportraits.com!

Also, Brock & Guthrie ask everyone how their eclipse experiences were.

E365 – DBR Does TABR!



David Barstow Robinson (known better to his friends as DBR) completed another long distance endurance bicycle race you might have heard of – 2017’s Trans-Am Bike Race, an unsupported cross-continent contest of strength and persistence you might remember from our interview with Nathan Jones or the documentary Inspired To Ride.  We ask him about his experiences, statistics, strategies, and emotional ups and downs.  Why’s it such a long episode?  ‘Cause he rode across the country!

Check out his race Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DBRbikes/

Harry Dalgaard & Gabriel Amadeus present the first public announcement, explanation, and question/answer session of the Oregon Timber Trail, a new public route allowing people to cross the state of Oregon from south to north (or vice versa, weather conditions depending) by mountain bike or a number of other methods.  We were there and caught it on tape!  Thanks to Base Camp Brewing for hosting the event, filling its walls with perhaps more beards and cycling caps than ever!
