I might not be a clear-cut bikepacker, or any other type of cyclist for that matter, but I definitely can’t live without a bike.
It allows me to travel, feel free, and rejoice in not having to think for a moment. I don’t have many racing ambitions, but I like to participate. To me, I feel like riding a bike is a lot like flying is to a bird. You can move through the land quite quickly, and when you add proper technique, it fills one with joy.
I live in the Beskydy mountains. My idea of the most beautiful bike trip is riding with my kids.
