E264 – Adam Stewart & Friends: Overnight Ride

Adam Stewart is a mechanic at Portland’s Velo Cult Bike Shop & Tavern, and took a bunch of his friends on an overnight gravel ride through the woods. How did it go? How was the morale? What should you do if you wanted to follow suit? Friends Kevin and Craig pitch in to fill out the answers.

Also: Brock goes to Steens Moutain, and Aaron needs some vitamin D.

Sebastien Poule says: “Thinking about leadership: I’ve always rejected the mantle of leader but don’t mind being an instigator.”

Ethan Georgi: “Glad to hear I’m not the only person who talks to himself while riding alone in the middle of nowhere.”
