Oregon Mountain Bike Traverse in ‘Our Land’: Weekend Watch

If you’ve ever thought of going on an Oregon mountain bike traverse of the famously MTB trail-rich state, you need to watch this beautiful film that accompanied Jason Fitzgibbon’s inspiring but eye-opening Eskapee article (that is also a highlight of Anthology 1). This is kind of a Friday Expedition and Weekend Watch combined.

Our Land is an equally awe-inspiring short film depicting Jason’s Oregon mountain bike traverse, in which he rode some incredible trails, camped out, surfed and fly fished his way across some of Oregon’s public lands.

“Our Land – Traversing Oregon is a story of an overland journey across Oregon’s highly varied public lands, to highlight the qualitative and quantitative value of such areas, in light of recent political developments that are threatening to take them away. From west to east, wildlife biologist and outdoor addict Jason Fitzgibbon, set out with cinematographer Octave Zangs to sample some of the state’s most rugged coastlines, its finest trails, and its wildest rivers, in an effort to enjoy and share some of the ecological resources, recreational opportunities, and priceless experiences that can be found in our threatened federal lands.”
