with Mark Graves
We will begin by looking at the ways that biking allows us to interact with the world and how to get started in bikepacking. We’ll talk about hardware, bikes, routes and where to set up for the night, whether that is stealth camping or parks or public lands. Lower technology equals more connectedness!
