We've got a copy of richpips' wonderful book to give away, 22,000 miles. 🎉
The marvellous combination of words, photographs and illustrations tells the story of Richard and his son Tom's riding exploits over nine years, and an incredible 22,000 miles.
From touring on their tandem across France to getting into off-road, including six years of racing at the 24 hour Strathpuffer MTB race and two completions of the tough Highland Trail 550 bikepacking race, the book culminates with their most recent journey; the world renowned 2,745 mile Tour Divide.
If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning this signed copy and delightful matching patch, simply comment below, tagging a pal that you'd like to ride 22,000 miles with!
A single winner will be drawn at random on Friday 4th December.
Copies are available for sale at littlepeakpress (link in bio).
It wouldn't be a proper challenge if it was easy. If you followed our IG stories last weekend, you'll have seen about Joel from wayfarercycles' unpaved #basketeveresting attempt.
After four hours of pedalling in darkness through the early hours, the strut on his Wald basket gave way and put a halt to the challenge.
We're still optimistic though, as Joel works on a more robust set up for attempt number two.
After all, great successes don't always come on the first try: like emilyofchappell and jamesmarkhayden's thetranscontinental race victories, Michael Jordan was axed from his school basketball team before going on to become a legend of his sport, and Walt Disney was fired from his role at the Kansas City Star because his editor said he 'lacked imagination and had no good ideas'...
We're looking forward to #basketeveresting 2.0....
33 mounts you say? The riverside_decathlon 920 touring bike is launching this weekend at an incredible £1,399/ €1,499, but we got our mitts on this prototype model to see what all the fuss was about.

First of those crispy, cold mornings in the UK this week, and ADVNTR contributor Tangwyn (lovecrossedCX) has certainly been making the most of it.
Layering up might be a bit more of a puzzle at this time of the year, but with scenes like this in the Cotswolds to discover, there's almost never been a better time to get out there.

Fully loaded and ready to roll; for the day at least. We've had to change the way we test bikepacking gear here at ADVNTR in light of covid restrictions, in this case test riding the prototype riverside_decathlon on day rides only (no overnight stays allowed) but fully packed up.
Nearly stowed between handlebar bag, fork packs and saddle pack you'll find an alpkit Jaran two person tent, cloud base mat, cloud cover quilt, an msr_gear stove, cooking kit, ddhammocks hammock, layers, tools and spares. Plus no less than three water bottles and a flask of hot chocolate!
We'll be bringing you our thoughts on the yet-to-be-released 920 Touring model at an incredible £1,399/€1,499) soon!
We're pretty damn excited for our first artist collaboration at ADVNTR, with the dirt rider and illustrator extraordinaire l__ermitage of studiofolk 🇫🇷

We've been getting a lot of messages about our neat little ADVNTR insulated flasks, so we've ordered some more which will be ready in our online shop soon. Gotta love that mid ride warmth in the middle of nowhere!
#basketeveresting, what the heck? We chatted to Joel of wayfarercycles to find out the logic behind his upcoming movember challenge, tactics and inspiration for this pretty guelling task ahead...

Candid, curious and cheeky; check out getwildmatty and thetouringartist's new film Lost Captures now.
Kicking off their world tour by bike, Yorkshire based couple Matty Waudby and Clare Nattress headed to Norway for their first MTB tour together. Besides the obvious adventure that lay in store, there was more to this trip than simply discovering a new country, new culture, of mountains, fjords and waterfalls and round-the-clock daylight.
With a collection of old film photographs taken by his Grandfather, Bob, on a cycle tour through Scandinavia in the 1950’s, Matty’s sights were soon set of finding the locations of these photos, following in the pedal strokes of one of his ancestors nearly 70 years before.
Watch the film produced with help from bombtrackbicycleco and Matty and Clare's photos on ADVNTR now (link in bio).

A new, gravel-specific saddle? Yeah, we were sceptical too.
Turns out the design behind fizik's short-nosed Terra Argo X3 really does deserve the name though, with some sweet features that dirt riders will really appreciate.

The name may be different but the concept's the same. We chatted to Dutch photographer and gravel riding king erwinsikkens_com about daypacking; what it is, what you'll need to take with you and some of his favourite gravel routes in the Veluwe, the Netherlands.
