Watch: Bikepacking the Blue Ridge Parkway

get more from BRO

This short film by bikepacking enthusiast and bicycle branding pioneer Dwayne Burgess chronicles a five-day backpacking trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Burgess began chronicling his backpacking adventures on his website Manual Pedal after biking from New York to San Francisco.

“There were’t too many specific plans that we put into place for this trip,” Burgess says in the film. “We just knew we’d spend five days on the Blue Ridge Parkway heading south. I think we both wanted to ride our bikes to explore and sequester ourselves in the mountains.”
