Why Bikepack? - A Salsa Cycles Short Film

Last fall, I invited E-Fred to join me on a bikepacking trip and warned him that I was going to film it. I wanted to try to capture what it is about bikepacking that I love, and hopefully encourage others to try it. Fortunately, E-Fred wasn’t scared off, and this film is the result. I hope you enjoy it.

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.

Doesn’t get much better than that.

These may very well be the kinds of activities that save the human race. It connects us to not only our natural world but our own nature, and in that realization comes a sense of value and preservation of the things that sustain us.

Great video! As an outdoor family I truly appreciate and enjoy seeing the adventures of my fellow enthusiasts. Keep it up.
