Bike Packing - a new type of adventure for me.

What do you do if you want go into wilderness areas but don't feel like lugging a 25kg pack on your back everywhere with you?

Answer: Get a couple of wheels, attach them to a metal frame with a seat and attach your gear to that. Sit on it and pedal.

A loop out of Island Bend taking in some of the best high country wilderness area surrounding Mt Jagungal. It was a 4 day trip where I only saw people on two occasions around lunch on the 3rd day. I visited half a dozen huts in an area that I have walked and skied over a period of 30 years. In Dec 2015 I returned on my bicycle.
