Video: The Free Radicals Riding in the Backwoods of Oregon

Bougie Backwoods Vacation // Curing the End-of-Season Blues in Oregon

Last October, the Free Radicals and three friends spent a week in the backwoods of Oregon, searching for an antidote to their end-of-season blues. Throughout the hunt, their daily agenda evolved into a pattern: Drive out of cell service; keep driving. Pedal several hours to the top of a mountain; bask in the views and solitude of the wild. Turn your bike downhill and ride faster than you ever thought possible, because you know your friends are doing the same thing right behind you. It turns out living, laughing, riding and celebrating as if all else is irrelevant provides the purest cure.

 Great video, but let’s not pretend that the bar with the Christmas lights on the ceiling, isn’t The Slammer Tavern in SE Portland and The Palms Motel is anywhere but in North Portland. (You don’t want to stay at the Palms BTW)

 No pretending here, we started and finished this roadtrip in Portland. How can you pass up a slice at Scottie's and some sodas at the slammer.

 @FreeRadicals: HAHA

I love the Slammer, good choice guys.

Still can’t believe you stayed at The Palms
(it’s in my vicinity, you took your bikes to bed with you to keep them safe right?)

 Eula Ridge is #1 trail in Oakridge. Anyone who says otherwise is a nerd. Dunno if its in this video though.

 @mustbike: haven't ridden Eula yet as i tend to ride on my own a lot and it's a bit of a long pedal solo. I could shuttle but I think I just need to talk my friends into doing longer rides...

 @mustbike: Couldn't agree more! I recognize the pedal up to Eula/Hardesty in the pictures
