Last August I spent one week on the #raetictrail, an über challenging bikepacking route in the very eastern part of Switzerland, with a little taste of Italy. A full on long travel bike, a rucksack with camping gear and an adventurous route called for great days with mother nature

The forth day was one for staying in bed.

The route climbs up to Piz Terza and well... continues.
This day it wasn't for me though. I knew the forecast wasn't good but climbed and climbed nonetheless until a thunderstorm hit the mountains with full force. Hail, rain and air splitting lightning kept me from going any further than the crap shelter ofa tiny and closed hut with a little overhanging roof.

During the long hours while waiting for the storm to move on the sound of a cowbell close by reminded me I was not alone.
Until the fog exploded with a bang that left my ears ringing. Dead silence followed.

Once the time lag between lightning and thunder was big enough I gave it all and sped downhill in the wettest of conditions.
In only a few hours the area saw precipitation of half the average month of August and I felt like Aaron Gwin in MSA 2017.

Back on the road I am not supposed to be on 🛣 to try and get through a mountain 🏔 I’d rather not climb at the end of the day! 😴 #gopropic #solostan

Day 59 : It made me sad, but I had to forfeit my ride today, because of the heavy rain and wind. Maybe just not brave enough...
And I couldn't stay in Forks either, cause of the price of the motel. 
So I took a bus to Port Angeles, and found a host here, nice enough to let me stay another night... Tomorrow, i'm going back out there, without packs and with full motivation !

🌲🌎🚴50 days ago I flew to Anchorage Alaska with my bicycle. I reassembled it at the airport and I've been riding south ever since. I've ridden over 2,000 miles (3,200km)...and the journey has only just begun. Still in the baby stage. Today I got into the ski town of Whistler BC, then tomorrow Squamish and then Vancouver❄️🌃I really really love this lifestyle. It feels sustainable for me to pursue long term...I guess only time will tell🚴Instead of explaining here why I love bike-packing while a hot bowl of rice and sautéed veggies stares me down, just go watch my daily vlogs to find out what it is I love about living this way✌️🚴🌎🌈🎃

Super stoked for @kevinehman and @nahanniwild to be returning home safe, sound and satisfied from an epic #bikepacking adventure in the #queencharlotte islands.
Glad to hear their @norcobicycles  Ithaqua #fatbike steeds, @enduraofficial MT500 waterproof gear @ixssports helmets @topeak bikepacking bags, @wildernesstrailbikes saddles and @ergonbike grips kept them safe and comfortable on their incredible trip.

Stay tuned for more pictures, videos and recap!

Look at those views and that track! We can’t get enough of the Old Ghost Road with its goblin forest, cute wildlife, gold rush tales, pristine rivers and hidden valley with boulders the size of houses. Oh yeah, there’s some outrageously good riding too – 85km of singletrack best savoured over three to four days so you can fully immerse yourself in this special part of New Zealand’s West Coast. It’s #bikepacking heaven! Photo credit: @theoldghostroad.

Local bikepackers are hitting the Monumental Loop.  This fella is headed out on to Cone Country tomorrow for a full weekend of riding.  Sounds great to us!

Now that the @dangerbird350 is on the scene the Monumental Loop has softened a bit.  The latest change cuts the nearly unrideable SST, instead the route now flows through the colorful geology of Apache and Spring Canyons near Picacho Peak. Thanks to the local fat tire crew for the inspiration and to @bikepackingcom and @logans.ride for supporting the route.  Riding season is here, come on down!

I've got my new @chumbausa Ursa 29+ bikepacking bicycle all packed and ready to go on it's maiden voyage tomorrow morning. This will be my first time ever using this bike on an overnight cycling adventure... and it will be my first time riding the bike with my new @wanderlustgear

As the Bicycle Touring Pro, I always tell people that one of the best things they can do to prepare for longer bicycle tours is to conduct a short 2-day bike tour first. So, that's exactly what I am going to do with this new bike and #bikepacking setup! I'm not going to cycle super far or super fast. Instead, I'm planning to cycle only about 35 miles to the nearby town of Williams. I'll refill my water bottles there, get a good meal, and then sleep somewhere in the forest. The following day, I'll cycle another 30 miles or so back to where I started... and then the bike tour will be over.

The goal here, once again, is not to cycle super far. The goal right now is to test my new bike, my new bags, and my packing strategies. After two days on the road, I'll likely discover a few things I wish I had packed... and a few things I wish I had left at home. Most importantly, this short overnight trip will help me prepare for my future off-road bikepacking expeditions

And that ends our 11 day tour of Graham Island in Haida Gwaii. We started with an overnight push from Skidegate to Masset (for cheeseburgers), then unsupported from Masset back to Charlotte via the North and East Beaches, with a few days camped on Rose Spit. I don't usually throw the word around but it was definitely a no-holds barred adventure. 
The wilderness and wildlife. Four days of waves, two being top class. River crossings and the variable conditions of beach riding. Being pinned down for two nights at Cape Ball in hurricane force winds. Standing at the tip of Rose Point as the sun broke through the squalls. Picturesque camp sites, sunrises, sunsets and storms. 
Deepest respect and admiration for @joelhibbard aka @nahanniwild, my partner in many a questionable venture and the co-dreamer of this trip for over a year now. Joel's knowledge, skills and instinct are unmatched in the backcountry and he was a rock front to back. 
Many thanks to Derek at @ltp_sports for making our crazy idea a reality. Gearing us up with the right machines from @norcobicycles and kit from @endurapparel @topeak and @ixssports made this trip happen. 
I'm super happy with our preparation and planning. Everything is soaked, dirty and sandy but it worked when it had to. And the rigs never failed. @norcobicycles and @burleydesign make some quality product. 
I'm fully cracked and ready to go home to bed and @bronathon. At the risk of sounding dramatic, the transcendent beauty of Haida Gwaii showed itself around every corner this trip. I'm humbled and grateful. This was an experience i'll never forget, and I already can't wait to come back.
Oh and we took and lot of photos and video along the way! Very stoked to sort through and share via our personal accounts and the trip sponsors in the coming weeks #bikepacking #adventurebybike #landrafting #thehardway #gohaidagwaii #humanpowered #slowisfast #explorebc

In lieu of the proper adventure I had planned this week I had a #microadventure and cycled round Hayling Island before my gig in Portsmouth. Unfortunately it utterly SHITTED rain at me about half an after this shot. Still. It made me stronger. #adventure #biking #bikepacking #portsmouth #haylingisland #sea #rain
I was more than excited to be leaving Cajamarca a few days ago, and the views far surpassed my expectations.

As did the emotional climbs and the cheeky river crossing. Thanks to the local geezer for pointing out the best place to wade across.

We managed a solid 50km with just short of 3000ft of climbing, not bad considering the adjustment to altitude and the blazing sun.

The adventure continues..... #bike #bikelife #bikepacking #bikes #cycling #cycle #mtb #275plus #titanium #sonderbrokenroad #sonder #alpkit #pochelmets #poctectal #oakley #peru #perú #valley #cajabamba #quiteaview #whataview #southamerica #wherenext

A throwback to one of the hottest weekends of the year. @j_crabill and I tackled the southern tier of a route I'm putting together. It was a beautiful, miserable trip, suffering under the torment of the sun. We are finally entering prime bikepacking season here in California so this weekend I will escape once more into the mountains. One hundred years ago two cyclists rode their bikes from downtown Sacramento to South Lake Tahoe. This was before paved roads and carved out canyons made travel easy. This weekend some hearty souls will be attempting to re-create their route. Should be fun.

Rolling into the weekend's got me all ✌🏽⠀

So share with me...where are you riding and what are you doing on two wheels? Is it gravel? Is it bergs? Or is it a casual loop with mates?⠀

The best answer wins a prize...three...two...one...GO!⠀

Day 48, rest day

I met up with @urbandestroyers in the morning. He is my newest cycle tour buddy! We quickly started working on our bikes - mine needed servicing, his needed to be built (packed from UK). I honestly thought we were going to miss our afternoon train, but we made it by 4 some minutes.

Unfortunately, the last leg of the train journey put our plans to a halt. It didn't allow bicycles except Brompton style folding bicycles. We looked at all options and decided to spend a night in Milan, then take trains (that allow bikes) to Savona. 
Things like this can happen and did happen. We are content with our situation and still excited for what's to come. Stay tuned... #bikepacking #cycletouring #adventurecycling

The 69er geometry (26" rear / 29" front) & riding style is my favorite.

Especially nice on #ridgid #singlespeed builds: taking advantage of the stronger & better accelerating drive wheel along with the greater roll-over of the lead wheel.

Here’s some more shots from day 2 it was humid to say the least and for me thinking there was less climbing I was sadly mistaken I did enjoy the downs but some of the climbs including stairs with a laden bike and unfit legs made for some tough going. Could I have done it on the singlespeed? Probably I might have walked a bit more and it would have made for a lighter set up.

Day 51: Hallelujah, we're in Louisiana! After a couple basic jumpy photos at the state border, I had the brilliant idea of lifting Harm on my shoulders. If it was the beginning of the day, I surely would've been able to stand up more than half an inch. Instead we were 50 miles (and weeks of Texas BBQ) deep, so we ended up with this. 😬 Sorry, Harm! Tonight we're staying at a historical museum in the town of Merryville, population 1,000. They put up bikers for free in a cabin on their property. They also have a jail, so I locked Harm in there for a couple hours while I ventured out for my first po-boy of the trip (jk, not about the po-boy though).
