It wasn’t until recently that I became aware of the lack of information around the concept of personal female hygiene and bikepacking. I’ve often been approached by other women with different questions about the subject, which made me realize that this matter may not come as easy to everyone, and that actually, there’s no distinctive guidance out there to help out.
With this video, I share my knowledge and experience, hoping it will help you and others out there to understand what female hygiene on a bike looks like. There’s no universal solution for everyone, but perhaps you’ll find good tips and advice to integrate into your future travels.
No woman should be stopped from following a dream because of insecurities related to this subject. The more we share about our experiences, the lesser the barriers.
