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!
Got your eye on a new bike for summer but still unsure about specs or sizing? Head down to The Cyclist Track day at York Sport Cycle Circuit, where you will be able to test out top end bikes and quiz on site mechanics.
I have many good & bad memories shared with this bike. The highs and the lows of long haul auduax rides and short rainy commutes to work, but the one thing I never forget is that over all, this bike shares more memories then all the bikes I've had in the last 10 years combined.
