The latest video from Josh & Sarah Ride is an ode to the head-clearing power of getting out to spend a night in a tent. Amid a hectic period in their lives, they recently pedaled away for a restorative overnighter, and this 12-minute video beautifully captures the experience. Watch it here…

Taking in the sunrise and sunset, listening to the birds, watching the stars, savoring a morning coffee at camp, and hearing the sound of gravel crunching under tires can all help us disconnect from the frenetic pace of life today. Seeking some respite, Josh and Sarah from the Josh & Sarah Ride YouTube channel recently took a break to appreciate all those simple pleasures on an overnight bikepacking trip close to their home in the UK’s Lake District.

“First we ride, then we push, and eventually, we struggle, but it’s all worth it for the prize in the end.”

Their video above is a powerful reminder of how a short trip can punch well above its weight in terms of the clarity and relaxation it can bring. Not every ride needs to span countries or continents to give back in a big way, and just shaking up our daily routines can do wonders for the body and soul. With stunning cinematography, heartfelt narration, and a pared-back soundtrack, Why We Camp is a moving homage to the beauty of taking a ride on your bike.
