THANK YOU TO THE FOLLOWING COMPANIES FOR SUPPORTING US AROUND THE WORLD
An independent company in the centre of Bristol, UK. Bristol Bicycles is the local bike shop with an empowering 'wheels-for-all' attitude.
Everything is hand built on site and we're very happy to be working with them.
We'll be taking a pair of their new tourers further than they've ever been before.
Almost every long distance cyclist we spoke to said that they wouldn't do a tour on anything but a Brooks saddle.
So we're pleased to be in good company, riding on a pair of his and hers Brooks Flyers.
Our panniers & bags are all Mainstream MSX; a German brand who create 100% waterproof and dustproof bags that will protect our belongings throughout this adventure.
Now we've just got to fit everything in!
We'll be kept warm in colder climates by Stolen Goat's Climb and Conquer winter riding gear.
Along with a couple of retro jerseys for good measure!
Tim at Stolen Goat helped kit us out for colder climates.
We'll be riding in Stolen Goat's Climb & Conquer range..
. . along with a couple of retro jerseys for good measure.
Pannier.cc is a hub for adventure cycling. More than just an outlet for gear, Stefan and his team have created a global network of cyclists and adventure-lovers.
We met Stefan for a coffee in Sheffield (he knows the best spots) and he kindly provided us with our cooking gear for the trip.
WildBounds inspire people with stories of adventure and stock all the gear to make wanderlust a reality.
They've helped us out with an assortment of survival items. Including cosy base layers to keep us warm in the colder months.
Matt and the team at Zpacks made our Triplex tent.
The day it arrived it practically floated through the letter box.
Weighing in at just under half a kilo, we're still marvelling at how light it is.
Big Agnes are also referred to as 'The Mother of Comfort' so we're happy that our sleeping bags and roll matts are made by them.
We're proud to associate with a company that are serious about sustainability. Big Agnes are committed to the 'Responsible Down Standard' for all their sleeping bags.
