“There seems to be some sort of innate suffering needed to go bikepacking, so we set out to prove that bikepacking could be fun,” says technical editor, Jon Woodhouse.
“We didn’t go down the conventional route of eating dried food or foraging for grubs or doing whatever proper bikepackers are supposed to do,” continues Jon. “We decided that we’d get in loads of rad riding, we’d carry all our stuff with us, and most of all, we were going to have fun.”
