Christian and I met through riding bikes - at a set of traffic lights in Chorlton-cum-Hardy specifically. The fundamentals of O.P were also formed on a bikepacking trip. We both now have two kids each, so it was about time we took our eldest ones with us and showed them just how profficient we are at faffing with bikes, tents and kit.
We’ve done some ace #12HoursofMay trips in the last two years - big days out and audacious school night bivvies but the idea of the challenge is that it’s very open to interpretation. A first joint 'dadpacking' trip was definitely within the ‘rules’.
So with a sunny forecast and a window away from running the business, this newly formed 4 person peleton loaded up trailers and headed outside for 12 hours, ready to embrace more faff than we have ever known. We are now the packhorses to Joss and Peggy’s 12 hours of May adventure...
