Donnie Kolb is regarded as the pioneer for gravel riding and bikepacking in the Pacific Northwest and Oregon. He founded and runs velodirt.com where he shares his trips, routes, and pictures from all the trips he has done. This installment of Conversations covers American Bikepacking, gear, and the 2014 Oregon Outback; a 360 mile event that runs from the southern border of Oregon all the way up to the North via a mix underimproved roads, forest service roads, blacktop, grass, and (of course) gravel.
