On the third episode of the Rodeo Podcast we first gather around to talk about big mountain adventures aboard drop bar bikes. Our recent ride up Jones Pass is a perfect case study of what this sort of riding is like so we use it as the main talking point. Should drop bar adventure bikes be up on these roads and trails that are typically the domain of the traditional mountain bike? How do we kit out our bikes for rides like this? Should you even attempt this sort of route? Is any of this any fun?
Next up we have a sit down with our factory rider Logan Jones Wilkins as he wraps up a solo road trip tour of the Western US with his Donkey in tow. Logan covered a huge range of terrain and vista on his route and had a lot of time with only himself for company. What’s it like to travel the country in Covid times? What were highlights of Logan’s trip? And how did Logan end up getting sponsored by Rodeo Labs in the first place? We cover it all here.
