209-Bikepacking; interviews from the trail

Show notes

In this episode we bring you a series of recordings from a recent overnight trip on the Canberra Centenary Trail. While i’ve done plenty of one day trips this was my first overnight backpacking trip and one with some sharp learning curves that will make me rethink the way I not just ride in the future but also hike.

At the end of this episode we discuss what I learnt on this trip and what I’d do differently next time I head out on two wheels.
