The Swift Industries Sightglass

Welcome to Stoked Spokes third Season.

For our first installment we follow our fearless peddlers from the east side of Cascades, to the Olympic Hot Spring, Down to Gunsite Ridge and on into the Cholula Mountains outside Mexico City. Through their exploration we will learn the nuance of eating well in the backcountry on a long trip, ride solo along the WABDR, shred with an all ladies bike packing crew and push ourselves through a challenging route in a Mexican Mtn Range.

Wednesday January 18th

Doors 6:30p-Start 7:00p



Olympic Hot Springs with Komorebi Cycling Team

75 miles of bikepacking, 5 miles of backpacking, and 3 days with 8 of the raddest, strongest women on bikes in the Northwest. Last summer Komorebi, an all-women’s bike packing team based out of Portland traveled north to Olympic National Park and invited me along as a guest rider. This is the true tale of under-biking 25 miles of some of the most beautiful single-track in Washington, exploring the freshly released Elwha River, and reveling in the wild Olympic Hot Springs.

Milage: 73

Duration: 3 Days

It is that time of year again. It is dark, maybe not so cold yet, but boy-oh-boy has it been wet! In observance of these dark, wet, Pacific Northwest winter days I am happy to announce that Stoked Spoke is back again for a third season of celebrating being outside and seeking adventures by bicycle.


Stoked Spoke is a winter series of bicycling adventure presentations!

Each evening highlights four to six self supported bike camping routes complete with maps, slideshow and planning tips. This year the trip reports will be 5-10 minutes long. Once all of the presentations are finished, each presenter will host an information table where they will answer individual questions and have maps of region they explored.

This is a three-part series that highlights the best bike camping destinations in Cascadia and beyond.

Stoked Spoke is being graciously hosted by the Rhino Room once again (click for map), a full bar equipped with a rad set-up for screening Stoked Spoke and booths that are perfectly laid out for you to check out maps and learn more. Rhino Room is opening its doors just for us! (21+ only)

We’ll be publishing a summary of each Stoked Spoke event on our blog, including route summaries and digital maps.
