Episode 69: Winter Riding -- Tips and Tricks from Laura and Ted King
Your Guide for a Great Winter Ride! This is a special one, welcome to King of the Ride podcast. Here we have return guest/sometimes-co-host Laura King and Ted talk about how to optimize your cold weather riding. You asked, we answered. After more than 1000 questions came pouring in, Laura and I summarized them and answer them today in this podcast. Here in Vermont, where the sun rises at lunchtime and sets a few minutes later, we need to make the most of our riding window and that takes lots of hardware, software, and just the right equipment. Here are some products mentioned in this podcast: Velocio is the only clothing we use. From stifling hot to frigid cold, there is NO better clothing out there. Alternating piping hot Ginger Mapleaid and Lemon Tea Mapleaid from UnTapped in a vacuum bottle is a definite. Bar Mitts are our dropbar bike hand covering of choice, now with Extreme Cold models. 45NRTH is our go-to for winter riding boots. Their Ragnarok are good MTB shoes for the slush and their Wolfgar are great in the deep frozen tundra. We also use their Cobrafist for arctic riding on a flat bar bike. Planet Bike SpeedEZ are the fenders currently on my bike. SKS Xtra Dry fender is currently on Laura's bike. Rene Herse Hurricane Ridge tires when I need some tread. Otherwise their Barlow Pass or Snoqualmie Pass are totally fine -- wide and supple. 45NRTH Dillinger 5 are 5" studded tires for fat biking. More questions? Send them to @iamtedking or @lauracameronking.

Randall Osterhuber - Winter Survival Instructor, Search & Rescue Badass, Snow Scientist, Avalanche Forecaster, Mountain Guide
Randall Osterhuber - Winter Survival Instructor, Search & Rescue Badass, Snow Scientist, Avalanche Forecaster, Mountain Guide - | Brought to you by Alta Ski Area “He was almost naked…He had very little clothes on… Frozen to the snow surface… Right when we skied up I thought for sure this guy was dead, but he had a pulse, he had slight respiration… So we assemble the sled, this is all up in this raging wind and snowstorm. Got a couple of sleeping bags inside each other inside a bevy sack, and we grabbed this guy, peeled him off the snow.. and went high speed back towards I-80 where a Truckee fire ambulance was waiting… The ER physician invited us into the trauma room to help with the rewarming. He had a core temperature of 79 faranheit when he was admitted to the hospital, and he was slowly warmed up, he went kinda backward through the whole hypothermia thing. His temperature hit the low 90s he started shivering…spent one night in the hospital, was discharged the next day, no frostbite, no organ damage. He walked away! Amazing.” - Randall Osterhuber Randall Osterhuber is ridiculously well certified and qualified to do just about anything in the mountains and his accolades are too extensive to list them all here so I'm just gonna go with the highlights. Randall has been a search & rescue leader for Tahoe Nordic Search & Rescue for 39 years. He has a degree in Physics and Mathematics from the University of Nevada, Reno, and a masters in Hydrology & Fluvial Geomorphology from UC Berkeley.

He's been a Technical Advisor to Sierra Avalanche Center for the past 15 years. He's been ski mountaineering all over the world for the past 40 years. He's even a winter survival instructor. Randall is the author of more than 50 technical papers on snow, snow hydrology, snow-zone climatology, and snow avalanche dynamics. Basically, no one has seen more in the mountains than Randall and his stories from search and rescue in the depths of winter are simply astonishing. In this episode, Randall & Miles discuss the best stories from Randall's illustrious search & rescue career, avalanche airbag backpacks, the best ways to stay out of avalanches, what's actually happening with climate change, what he's seen as a snow scientists the past 25-years, how we could improve avalanche beacons, and much much more. Randall Osterhuber answers these nerdy questions: * Can you share a story from your experience as a search and rescue leader? A story that stands out from the rest? * What was your most challenging rescue? * Is it OK to backcountry ski solo? * What's the best way to stay out of avalanches? * What's the #1 tool available to backcountry skiers & riders in avalanche terrain? * What's your opinion on the effectiveness of avalanche airbag backpacks? Should we all be wearing one? * Is Donner Summit, CA one of the snowiest places on Earth that we know of? * What did you learn working at the Snow Lab on Donner Summit for 24 years? * What evidence of climate change have you seen in your lifetime? Personally and on a data level? * What climate trends are you seeing? * What's your prediction for the future of our climate? * What do you think has to happen to see real progress in the fight against climate change? * If you could work on any scientific study about snow, what would you work on? What would be your fantasy study? * Could ground-penetrating radar could both find a buried human and potentially be used to analyze the snowpack using spatial variability? * Many more...

Ep. 62 - Kait boyle, FKT on the kokopelli
On the morning of Christmas Eve 2018 Kait Boyle was at the height of her ultra endurance racing career, having won the 24 hour World Championship in 2018 and set a new record on the AZT 300. Her life would take an unexpected turn later that day when she was involved in a horrific vehicular accident that left her with a long list of injuries and a long path to recovery. Like many of you, I watch her social media feed for months as she dedicated herself to rehabilitation and ultimately back to fitness. * * * Almost a 2 years, and a pandemic later, she finally found herself at the top podium again. This time in the form of an FKT on the Kokopelli Trail. On Nov. 6th, 2020 Lael Wilcox, Kurt Refsnider, and Kait all met in Moab at the start line of the Kokopelli, each of them on ITT's with FKT's on the mind. Kait was able to finish with a time of 13 hrs, 7 mins, which was good enough to beat the long standing time set by Rebecca Rush by 25 minutes. In doing so, she answered 2 years of questions and uncertainty. She was equally rewarded for her hard work, perseverance, and PATIENCE. As a personal fan, I remember cringing seeing the gruesome pics from her crash and injuries. It was hard to watch, I can't imagine how hard it was to live. * * Pictures courtesy of Rugile Kaladyte In addition to her accomplishments on the bike she is also the Co-Founder of Bikepacking Roots, which supports and advances bikepacking, the growth of a diverse bikepacking community, and access to and the conservation of the landscapes and public lands through which we ride. Her contributions on and off the bike are both impressive and valuable to this community that we all love. It was great to share in this milestone with her and hear about her journey over the past couple of years. Kait, congrats on the FKT, and we look forward to rooting for you in future races. You can learn more about Kait on her website or follow her on social media.
