In ‘Ring of Fire,’ two best friends and ski mountaineers head off for the adventure of a lifetime — they just don’t know it yet.
Stein Retzlaff and Erich Roepke are best friends. And they like to ski and play outside. They wouldn’t call themselves proficient bikepackers, but that didn’t stop them from doing it. So far, their story sounds pretty standard.
Not for long.
“What started as a ‘casual’ 1,000-plus-mile bike ride and volcano skiing adventure in the Pacific Northwest quickly became a sufferfest worth talking about,” Outside TV teased.
Yeah, let’s break that down: a 1,000-mile bike ride, skiing 12 volcanoes along the way, with curveballs like hospital visits, flat tires, a robbery, and more.
The duo’s adventure was 30 days long, but their story is recounted in four, easily digestible, 10-minute episodes. Outside released the final episode this week.
