STOKED SPOKE ADVENTURE SERIES part 2.
Idaho’s Bitterroot Loop This historical northern Idaho landscape was originally traversed by intrepid explorers on foot and canoe, then horse, steamboat, and train. Join Charley and Meghan Traylor as they recount their bike-tour exploring long stretches of the rural Idaho panhandle punctuated by far-flung trailside communities. Riding along two-hall-of -fame rail-trails, their tires never touched a major roadway.
Willapa Hills and the Northern Oregon Coast Range Explore the Southwestern Washington foothills, estuaries and the north Oregon coast range on this mixed dirt and paved adventure. Austin’s ride started at the Olympia train station and quickly picked up an overgrown rail-trail that took him to Willapa Bay. Crossing the mighty Columbia River he founds himself in the Oregon coast range and its foothill farmlands, and he made his way back into metro Portland by way of the Banks-Vernonia Trail. These are the stories of one fellow’s first bicycle adventure and the haphazard joy ride that got him hooked on bike touring.
Circumnavigating Mount Rainier. There are lots of perspectives to any challenge, and when one circles one of the Pacific Northwest’s most beautiful volcanoes you come away with a different sort of understanding of things. Two friends fledge Seattle to ride the high roads of Mount Rainier and pedal homeward with a different take on the ghostly peak that looms in the city’s distance. The people who have climbed her, glacier fed rivers and the kindness of strangers are all woven together by a trip shared by two friends with a rock solid love for adventure. Meet the characters along the way, get to know the roads that were discovered, and give a toast to the restless mountain on our horizon. Shared by Martina Brimmer, owner of Swift Industries.
