I've been reading a lot about bikepacking adventures lately. Nothing stokes the fires of your travel heart like other people's epic tales. And as a cycling copywriter I also take a lot of joy from well-written stories about bikes.
If you've explored the world of bikepacking at all then you should know the name Alastair Humphreys, a man who rode around the world, using three bikes, 15 chains, 20 sets of tyres and four years of his life to do it. Amazingly he was only 24 when he started. Get the full story on his site, or from this awesome video.
