Today I gave an hour long presentation "Introduction to Bikepacking" at the annual Midwest Mountaineering Outdoor Adventure Expo. I used my experience training for and racing the Tour Divide as the conduit for the experience and shared the gear that I used and am using still.
A big Thank You to everyone that filled room 25 at the Humphrey Center! This was the first time I've presented anything like this and I was pleasantly surprised by the attendance and participation. I'm thankful that we have such a great outdoors community here in the city. Midwest does an incredible job building and serving this community.
For those that came to see me speak, I'd like your feedback! What worked? What didn't? What could I have done more/less of? I can take it, give it to me straight. I want and need to hear(read) it.
Finally, what questions did you have that didn't get answered? Let's keep this an ongoing discussion. If there is enough interest, I'll do a series of posts to answer those questions.
Otherwise, get out and ride!
