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.

Komorebi

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.
