FFF: 4 bikepacking videos that might make you head for the woods

On this second installment of FilmFestFriday, I decided to pull together several videos that capture two things that bikepacking great… wilderness and camaraderie. Here are four bikepacking videos that may inspire you to strap some bags to your trusty steed and head out into the forest.

The Escape

I love this video… I have watched it several times and it’s actually led me to look into getting a trailer. What a great way to do a trip! It’s worth watching on a bigger screen if you have the technology to do so.

Bikerafting Alaska’s Lost Coast: Yakutat to Glacier Bay

I think I heard about this trip and video before I even knew that bikepacking was a thing. One day, I’d like to pull off such a trip…

The Hickory Stick

An awesome little bit of entertainment from the guys at Republic of Doom.

Stargo Bohemia

Not the greatest quality for the actual video footage, but the content is nice, and in my opinion worth a watch… if only for the music track—a little Nebula, the former Fu Manchu guys.

In the slim chance that someone reading this may have known me on Twitter in my former life, may have see my Friday Playlist. I enjoyed curating a playlist of music every Friday that captured a mood, music genre or concept. I decided to move that energy to Pedaling Nowhere and create a once a month video playlist. There are a lot of great bike videos out there, so check back every third Friday. See more FilmFestFriday posts.
