36 Hours In Kitsbow:
in Stillwater, OK

by Mary Bardell November 30, 2018 3 Comments

Not every ride goes according to plan. With the right company, it doesn’t matter. For better or for worse, for richer or poorer, all that jazz….

“In Oklahoma, you learn to make a lot out of a little…..Turns out that the unfortunate weather that scrambled our storyboards helped us tell a truer story. Ask around about the Land Run 100, and you’ll learn that we know how to put together an epic ride or two in Oklahoma, but a more honest reflection of our community of bike riders is found in those everyday rides that go according to plan or don’t, while the people sharing them barely notice the difference.” -Seth Wood

It came together as a side effect of a reunion among certain too long parted friends. The player that really drives the show is the red dirt roads of Oklahoma, a rugged hilly expanse surrounding the small, big college town of Stillwater and the ever changeable weather of the American Prairie...and a big surprise at the end...

 

36 Hours in Kitsbow is a short film series where regular riders tell their stories of how they rode near their home, for the joy of the ride, without spending a ton of money (or time) doing it. In other words, the bike adventure any of us can enjoy.

Fantastic video. Looking forward to visiting Stillwater for the 2019 Landrun. Would love to know artist/title for the song used in the video.

Very nice, but you left out the best part: “In Oklahoma, you learn to make a lot out of a little…..Turns out that the unfortunate weather that scrambled our storyboards helped us tell a truer story. Ask around about the Land Run 100, and you’ll learn that we know how to put together an epic ride or two in Oklahoma, but a more honest reflection of our community of bike riders is found in those everyday rides that go according to plan or don’t, while the people sharing them barely notice the difference.” -Seth Wood

A proper bikepacking trip can consist of one short local overnighter or a multi-week expedition into unknown territory. There are many ways to do it and not one of them is wrong. That said, there are certainties – lessons culled from hard-earned, real life experience – that we’d like to share.
