2017 October Bike Packing Night
Our next adventure cycling event of the year is going to inspire you to embark on your own bike-packing adventure.
THE GREAT COQUIHALLA BIKE RIDE
This year we will be jumping in the Delorean and heading back in time to the days of the first mountain bikes with the OG's of bike packing, Will Schmidt and Bob Boonstra. Bob will revisit their adventure touring trip of the Coquihalla route, (before it became the highway it is today) and honour his adventuring comrade, Will, who has since passed away.
BIKE PACKING FILMS
We will feature three separate short films and one trailer:
"Fast Forward" - Featuring Lael Wilcox (7:57)
"Ride. Camp. Repeat" (2:18)
"Flashes of the Altai" (5:00)
"The Frozen Road" - Trailer (3:28)
BIKE & GEAR SETUP SESSON
Our team will then explain what bike packing is and how to start planning your first trip!
We will talk through a few local routes and explain our very own "Original Adventure Club" then talk through proper gear selection, how to pack your gear, and offering tips and tricks that we've learned along the way.
