I’d spent a bunch of time during the winter months learning about bikepacking. With my first trip planned and fast approaching it was time to get everything together. I had not been doing as much bicycling as I have in the past so I needed to get my body ready for the trip (and not just my bike). Max helped me get Emily’s old high school Specialized mountain bike back to 100%. Then I got it tested out and outfitted for the trip. Ready…somewhat?!?
