Riding Fixed, Up Mountains, with Pros – Episode 6: Lone Pine
Donned the "luxury sportsman" after burning out on professional cycling, Angus "Gus" Morton instead pursued a career in television and film, and later created Thereabouts. Much more than a docuseries, the movement almost single-handedly rewrote the modern road bike rule book. Gus is debatably the pioneer of contemporary adventure cycling. An email from him earlier this year, sent at a time of day and a day of the week that still lends clear-headed and sober communication, reads: "We should do one where it takes so long to climb and it's so hard that we need to sleep overnight at the top of the mountain." Welcome to Episode 6 in the Eastern Sierras of Lone Pine.
