For State Bicycle’s latest episode of Riding Fixed, Up Mountains, With Pros, they take Alex Howes up a 3,600-foot climb on Colorado Highway 103 to Echo Lake.
Over the course of 32 miles up and down the mountain, listen in on a wide-ranging and inciteful interview including these tidbits:
-Would you guess that Alex is a science geek?
-Why does Lachlan Morton, the Australian Pro, have his brake levers reversed?
-Did you know that “undorkifying” is a word?
-Fashion commentary: US men versus Europeans. (Who believes cargo pants never go out of style?)
-Alex Howes quote of the day: “In every Pro, there’s an average Joe.”
