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.
