Next Episode of Hairy Bikers: Route 66 is
The Hairy Bikers fulfil a long-held ambition: to take on the world's most iconic road trip, America's Route 66, which spans over 2,000 miles of tarmac from Chicago to California. With a large helping of their signature warmth and humour, Si King and Dave Myers explore modern America via the ‘Mother Road' and learn how it drives you into America's past, meeting the communities, cultures and cuisine along the way.
As the Bikers ride from place to place, they share their passion for good food and have some incredible experiences which give them the real taste of America.
From joining modern day cowboys on a thrilling cattle drive through the vast prairies of Oklahoma and experiencing the staggering scale of the Mojave Desert and Monument Valley, to cooking with the Amish community and sampling the very latest LA food trends, the Bikers have an unforgettable adventure.
On the second leg of their Route 66 adventure Dave and Si set out to discover what lies beneath the legend of this iconic road.
At a biker bar in Missouri they learn of a much older route: The Trail Of Tears, A path taken by the Cherokee and other tribes after being forcibly removed from their homelands. Then, after a spot of fishing on the Big Piney river, the Bikers cook up Blackened Fish and Dirty Corn for the bar's regulars.
Heading west, Dave and Si visit a roadside museum described as a love letter to Route 66. The current owner, like her father before her, is passionate about keeping the magic of the fabled road alive.
On the third leg of their trip Dave and Si are on the trail of Oklahoma's famous beef. In Oklahoma City a classic T Bone steak is followed by a visit to the city's Vietnamese community to knock up Vietnam's beefy national dish - Pho.
After checking out El Reno's unique onion burger the Bikers hook up with a couple of fire crews who like to cook - especially brisket.
An organic sweet potato farm inspires the Bikers to make sweet potato brownies, before they finish this stretch on a cattle ranch with America's most iconic custodian of the land - the cowboy.
Dave and Si ride from Texas into New Mexico, exploring the small independently owned restaurants and food producers, and cooking carnitas with mac and cheese and a grown-up chilli chocolate pie.
For the fifth leg of this epic adventure, the bikers are crossing the state of Arizona in search of the Wild West. They start by making a small detour from route 66, starting in Monument Valley to learn more about this striking place and discover the Navajo Nation.
