Our friend and regular contributor Mark Watson, who recently wrapped up a four-year, 46,000-kilometer bikepacking trip through the Americas (our Bikepacking Collective members can soon read a retrospective in the sixth issue of The Bikepacking Journal), shared some stories from his journey on Radio New Zealand’s “Nine to Noon” program earlier today.
