September 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm£7.50
An evening of bikepacking adventure talks from a varied selection of riders from the South West.
Presentations covering all aspects of bikepacking: racing, touring & leisure, an informal opportunity to ask the presenters questions about their events & adventures and time to take a look at the variety of bikes and equipment that they choose to use & why.
Andy West will be giving an account of the 2019 Highland Trail 550 race which saw competitors battle it out with some of Scotland’s worst weather conditions, the attrition rate was high and those who finished certainly earnt their finishers beer.
Katherine Moore is no stranger to jumping in feet first into any adventure on a bicycle and is going to take you through the fine art of bikepacking in order for you to share and learn through her experiences whilst out in the wilds.
Andy Deacon will take you on a trip from Lands End to John O’Groats, predominantly off road, via The Racing Collectives, inaugural 2019 GBDuro event on his unique set up, and exactly what it took to pedal those last 100km.
We encourage you to bring a bike, bag & bivvy & explore the Stroud valleys.
This is a not for profit event, any proceeds from the evening will be donated to www.mind.org.uk
