E310 – The Steens Mazama 1000

Maria Schur & David Barstow Robinson both rode their bicycles from Portland to the other corner of the state, and up to the top of the two highest peaks in that state.  They were among several other racers that completed the unsupported Steens Mazama 1000 tour through incredibly steep hills, barren wildlands, and comforting tiny towns in rural Oregon.  We talk about both of their approaches to the challenge and how each of them found a way through to victory.  Find Maria’s write-up of the trip here.

Also: Brock and Aaron do some driving, separately.
