Riding out of camp in the early autumn sun a couple of months back while bikepacking with my youngest daughter and Banjo. A Tawny owl entertained us with hooting from a tree above our tent the night before, the tent itself dry after a couple of days of heavy rain. Ready to embark on the last and longest leg of our bicycle trip across Denmark, we’re already stuffed to the gills with precious moments from the last week. The kind of moments you can’t buy for money, you have to earn them little by little, pedal stroke by pedal stroke.
The moment you realise adventure is right at your doorstep, you also realise that there’s no need to fly around the globe in search of adventure. Here’s to making the planet great again by using bicycles for low impact transport and exploration (I suppose that rules out flying half way across the globe to go on a bicycle adventure). #maketheplanetgreatagain#sustainableliving
GEAR : PIMP MY BIKE
Today, let me introduce you first of all the new leather saddle by @brooksengland I just bought yesterday as well as the baby that should follow me in my adventure : my @ridecannondale bike!
About the saddle, I'm glad I bought it more than a year before I go, because it will let me the opportunity to make it shaped until I go. I'll give some reviews on it all along the adventure, count on me !
About my bike, it's a almost 10 years old bike that my parents bought for their first bikepacking trip. It's super light and perfect for me as I know it by heart. Still, I'm not sure if it's the one I will take on my tour, but for sure I will train with it and pimp it anyway : it needs a new luggage carrier, new handlebars and a bell and lights. I will go step by step to what should be my best companion along the road !
Last winter we decided to film an introspective journey through the pathways of ancestral fears. Today we're so proud and excited to announce that TRAMONTANA has been rewarded for the "Best Cinematography and Editing" at the 2017 Bikepacking Awards by @bikepackingcom . Don't forget to check out all awards of this interesting selection of film, photography and art. (Link in bio)
