Our story of Cycling the Hebridean way. 295 miles, 10 islands, 6 causeways, 5 trains, 4 ferries, 2 Bikes, 1 unforgetable trip on Scotland's Western Isles.
Instead of the once a month preparation I had hoped for, I had managed only one bikepacking trip this year. A midweek-microadventure was required.
I decided to plan my first microadventure, bikepacking to work. To ride out one night for a wild camp and then carry on to work the next morning.
Review of the Thompson R9300 Gravel Bike - An aluminium gravel bike with carbon forks, hydraulic disc brakes, 700x35c tyres and a Shimano Tiagra groupset.
Winter means reduced multi-day bikepacking adventure chances, but I managed to do a long distance ride. But was it Bikepacking, Touring or just transport?
Although traveling with others is enriching, sometimes organising group trips is impossible. But travelling by yourself does not mean you will be lonely.
