Eric Olsen is racing his first elite Enduro World Series (EWS) season this year, but he’s doing things a little differently than all the other competitors. He and his close friend Dan Perl departed from their home in Bellingham, Washington, to tour from one race to the next. The two are carrying everything they need to be completely self-sufficient throughout their aptly named “Tour De EWS.” Watch the video below and scroll down for more on their bikes and the fundraiser that they’re working toward.

Bikepacking Enduro World Series

From Eric: “I believe bicycles are not just a means of recreation, but also a life-changing form of transportation, so I am fundraising for World Bicycle Relief along the way. Jank Components will be donating 50% of profits in the month of June, or you can donate directly.”
