pedal through by rei presents

There’s so much to love about this film from REI. The stories of these women and what they learn from their adventure is relatable and heart felt. The beauty of the trails they travel is captivating. And the thrill of seeing a new type of adventure is always a good thing. I highly recommend watching it!

I haven’t started gravel biking (yet) but after watching this film, I was ready to march right out my door and start pedaling away. I don’t have a bike though, so maybe this summer I’ll consider renting one and checking out what bikepacking on gravel is all about.


Next Steps

If you’d like to explore what it might take to create this type of adventure for yourself, here are some planning tools to check out:

1. You need something to ride.

  • Don’t have a bike? Explore the sport by renting for an adventure – check out your local bike rental shops with a google search

2. You need a place to go.

3. Plan out the details of what you’ll carry and how you’ll fuel the adventure.

4. Go!
