Tourers, Green-Laners and bikepacking

With spring in the air (admittedly behind the fog) now seems like a good time for an update on the exciting stuff that’s going on at Pilgrim Cycles.

Our own Pilgrim tourers, audax and bike-packing bikes have continued to prove popular, and a number of Surlys and Dawes bikes have gone off for some epic adventures in places such as Burma, Thailand and Cambodia, as well as the US, Canada and Europe.   One customer’s heading for Australia overland shortly, and another for New Zealand again overland as much as possible.  A dynamo front wheel and lights are normal upgrades for the discerning overland traveller and we’ve fitted plenty recently.

We are now a stockist of ‘Wildcat’ bikepacking gear – all made in the UK for lightweight off-road touring but also a great way to compliment traditional touring luggage-carrying capacity with frame bags and other solutions ready to go.  See www.wildcatgear.co.uk

For a great radio article on bikepacking in general take a listen to http://thebikeshow.net/adventures-in-bikepacking/ when you have a spare half hour.
