Over the years our adventures have changed, so to the gear and bikes. We’ve been moving from heavily loaded bikes cycling mainly on paved roads, to lighter loads, off road, with bikes to match. Dumping the traditional heavy racks and panniers packed full of ‘unnecessary’ gear, to sporting soft bags packed with only the essentials. The transition from ‘traditional bicycle touring’ to the ‘bikepacking’ style was the natural route for us, preferring to get off paved roads and onto tracks, paths or making our own, venturing into the wilds.

These pictures span the last 5 years or so and shows this transition…
