ADVENTURE BY BIKE®

Bikepacking The Colorado Trail - A Photo Journal

Last summer, my friend Ryan Horkey and I set out to bikepack the Colorado Trail. For two flatlanders, it was a refreshing experience of riding our bikes, or pushing them, up to the summits of multiple 10,000-foot-plus peaks. In the end, it was a grand adventure, made up of hard work, sudden mountain storms, and breathtaking scenery. These are some of my photos from the trip.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Sean 'Mailman' Mailen

I was born and raised in the hills of Tennessee. I decided in high school I wanted to design the best bikes and parts possible; I’ve been following my dream ever since. I love about every possible mode of cycling, mountain biking is the most fun, but if I’m on two wheels I’m happy.
