We choose a form of bikepacking
We consider where, when, with whom and under what conditions we’ll ride. We choose the border area between Belgium and Germany, when the rules allow us to do so. We ask Mark and Bastien along, a seasoned bike packer and a local legend. Let's go minimal! With a bit of luck, we'll stay dry and a mat, sleeping bag and cooking gear will be enough.
- Light insulating sleeping mat
- Sleeping bag with a comfort temperature to 0 degrees (max -10)
- Emergency thermal blanket (you never know...)
And to take all that stuff with us, we pack it compact and smart. By smart, we mean that we’ll not need the sleeping bag and mat during the day, so they go in the back. Food, cameras, etc. will often be needed, so they go in the bikepacking bags within reach.
