Bike packing

Post by housil » Tue Jul 07, 2020 5:12 am

Last weekend we made a bike packing tour, nothing say´s more "grab some rations" :mrgreen:

We started pretty packed...

Next stop over was a cabin

Around dinner time we came to the former "Limes" wall, built by the Romans in 100 A.D.

We kept going, looking for a nice place to stay over night when we found that one:

Man, what an awesome adventure. I love how much history you guys have out there, and the photo series is excellent. Makes me want to hop on the Kettle Valley Railway around here and get it done. Maybe next year, when my leg is healed up.
All the best, Gents.

- I'm also making videos mainly for my own enjoyment, but hey, maybe you might want to check them out: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4-9gp ... C1dSyPX0w/

I love it when they turn the old rail roads into hikes trails
