Packing my bags

So with any multi day bike ride, something I haven't even done yet, the need for the right equipment is key. The bags I strap to the bike are essential and I have been lucky enough to partner with Apidura who are brand leaders in backpacking.

Image below of my BMC URS packed with some of my Apidura bags at Nant Y Moch. I should be passing this point on Day 3 of my GB Divide tour.

I'll be exclusively using the expedition range by Apidura, created for road, off road riding and long distance tours, the Expedition Series is built from a lightweight material that provides unparalleled waterproofing and defence from the most punishing conditions. Check out their full range at
