That Hurt Like Hell May 27, 2014

OregonOutback-1

28 hours of moving time, 60 elapsed hours, 13mph average, 15,300′ elevation, 368 miles later and Team AWOL is done. We finished the Velodirt Oregon Outback, self-supported, fully loaded on Sunday, 45 minutes ahead of schedule. I rode the last day with a bum knee and a crooked back. It was three days of highs and lows, with a constant headwind.

… but we did it. Expect a whole torrent of photos and posts once I recover and return home to Austin.

Thanks for the support on Instagram and your patience while the site has been inactive.

    Very impressive! Sounds like a tough ride. I can’t believe Jan Heine rode it on his Rene Herse, then rode back home to Seattle. That’s fuckin nuts. Look forward to seeing your pics and report.

    Congrats. Sounds monumental. Cannot wait for the posts!

  • Bradley Tompkins

    Killed it! This makes Ira Ryan’s achievement all the more impressive seeing/understanding the epic difficulty of the event. I hope I can do rides like this one day. Chapeau!
