Bikepacking Setup – Join me on the first Test Ride

Join me on the first test ride with my new bikepacking setup. Something I’ve been meaning to do for a while, but waited until I had the bags packed in full. So, the bikepacking setup you see in this video is lightweight and fully loaded to support a ride of 3 to 4 days before I have to stop for more food supplies.

On one of these fine days, I will find a proper lockdown-friendly, local gravel trail to ride for more understanding on how all the gear including the bike performs on bumpy trails.
