Pack light - there's mountains to climb
2017 - at the top of the Gotthard pass 🇨🇭
About half way en route from Venice to Geneva. 7 of us set out on an amazing adventure with more than 20 big climbs over 8 days.
Bike packing, or fast touring as we rode it, is the most fun adventures one can have on a bike. You find the enthralling scenery, the excitement, how a country changes gradually from one place to another, the food, the towns, the roads and the kindness of strangers.
All you know is the route and the flight numbers, just be sure to pack your lucky underwear to help find a bike box at the other end of the voyage!
Been on three of these missions. If you ever have the opportunity, do it and don't look back. Viscacha saddle pack - a great piece of kit.
Yesterday i was stung by this little saddle pack caterpillar and had a really strong reaction. Terrible headache, vomiting, lightheadedness, swelling, burning and stinging where it stung me, and nerve pain up my arm. The headache lasted the whole day and the other symptoms lasted a couple hours. I had insane dreams where i was chasing things i could never quite reach and woke up in the middle of the night stressing out about things i could not control.
Today i feel achy and tired.
Who knew something so tiny (like the size of a fingernail) could give a human such an intense physiological reaction.
Have any of you ever had a reaction like this to a saddle pack?
Playing around with this #beautiful#bushcraft#backpack for two weeks now. it's the #savotta#borderpatrol backpack. Since the #saddlepack wasn't the right one for me, I'm trying this one, and so far I'm excited. Great backpack!!! @savotta_deutschland @finnsavotta would be great if savotta would build a 60l external frame backpack with the border patrol as raw model!
Custom saddle packs by our mate in the UK @michael_walkden. Made from heavy duty Cordura fabric, featuring multiple compartments, hidden zipper pocket and finished off with a mil-spec Cobra quick release buckle. Plenty of space for a tube, mini-tool, levers and co2 pump. Who's keen on one?
Lots and lots of fancy bikes down at @bespokeduk! If you’re in the market for a way of holding your spares while out on the road check out our limited run of olive webbing tool rolls. Available over in @foreverpedalling and by DM. Have a great weekend! 🚲 ☀️
Le shopping pour le #borntoride se termine. Je viens de recevoir la dernière pièce du puzzle essentielle. Un grand merci à @sportsfusion63310 et Nicolas @histoire.bike. Encore un peu de bricolage à faire sur le vélo pour qu'il soit opérationnel. Le vélo sera sûrement prêt avant la cycliste car avec toute cette pluie je suis démotivée à rouler...
