We’re super excited about the latest addition to our European ‘Brother in the Wild’ tour! This time collaborating with the good guys at Musette Bicycles & Coffee in the heart of historic Bordeaux, France. As local experts in bikepacking (and brewing coffee!) the guys from Musette are the perfect partners to create an unforgettable bikepacking overnighter – keeping it in the spirit of ‘Brother in the Wild’ just swapping the usual beers for bottles of wine.

The event will be a 2 day ride and 1 night campout starting and finishing at the Musette shop in Bordeaux. The route will take you East out of the city into Entre Deux Mers – a world famous wine region full of rolling hills and chateaus. You will pass a number of towns and villages along the way to stop for food and refreshments – the most famous being St Emilion, a medieval world heritage site famous for its architecture and fine wines. This is a perfect place to kick back and relax with some lunch.

After this the route snakes along the Dordogne river before following a network of tiny country lanes and gravel tracks until reaching our home for the night – the grounds of a large manor house where we’ll enjoy a BBQ dinner and wine tasting before camping out under the stars.
