The Distance is what I call a great introduction to bike packing. As they call it, ‘Self Supported with benefits’. This event allows cyclists to enter the world of gravel riding or bike packing with some additional benefits.
What better way to spend the weekend of the Tour de Yorkshire then basking in the sun, bike fully loaded, heading towards the dales for an overnight adventure. It's been quite a while since the weather has been good enough to get the bivy out and go on a tour so with the weather so good, I got my route, bike and kit prepped and went on my way!
