BIKEPACKING: GO BEYOND
You can go deep with a mountain bike, but often you can not go all the way to the better destination. Certain areas are off limits, others are much better hiked. International touring cyclists know all too well that they’ll be on foot at some point, negotiating airports and/or other public transportation where a good backpack makes for a happier day. Until the Convertible Pannier Backpack by Richard Jones, dual-mode bags were panniers first, and cobbled into a structure that could be carried on the back. With the Convertible, it’s hard to tell which came first. It is entirely at home in both configurations, with the features you’d expect in the ‘best in class’ of either single product. But you only have to buy one of these, and never worry about how you’re going to take it with you. Whether you choose our Classic (rear panniers), or the Elite model with the additional front pannier capacity, you’ll go further than you ever thought possible.
Not every bike adventure offers fabulous hiking trails. But even if you aren’t planning to hike on your bike tour, you will find yourself on foot, even if you’re only hiking between trains. In spite of the best preparation, sometimes stuff happens – you never know when you’ll be walking. We’ll help you remain flexible – it’s all good!
