AWOL and Oregon are the perfect match, just like AWOL and POLER. Both love Oregon and both have the likes for rad stuff. A friendship was destined to happen.
The AWOL is a #campvibes enabling shred sled.
Team AWOL went back to their California base-camp and smoke signaled our common friend John Watson / The Radavist and dared him to do a (r)adventure with us.
And so it happened. Erik Nohlin and John Watson as Team AWOL on the AWOL x POLER, unsupported, across the Oregon Outback. Klammath Falls in the South to Columbia River on the Washington border. 3 days and 368 miles.
The Poler x Specialized AWOL bicycle is available in very limited numbers at Specialized Dealers nationally;
