We are pleased to sponsor the new short film, Looking Down Is Looking Up, showcasing a bikepacking adventure on New Zealand's South Island. Loaded with 6 days of food, Deane, Sam, and filmmaker Dylan ride across the Main Divide of the island, utilizing the Harper Pass Route.
As with any unpredicatable journey, the travel is at sometimes slower than expected, but at other times quicker. Rainfall makes the rivers rise. Expected downhill riding becomes downhill pushing. But through it all a new mission is accomplished.

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.
