Wonderful video. I would be interested in gpx track of this trip. How many days did it take you?

Also what is your technique or gear harness to carry your bike on your back?

Thank You 👍

Thanks, Brambor, you can find the whole, planned route, including shortcuts, sidetracks and alternatives, on ride with gps:
https://ridewithgps.com/routes (all routes starting with TPXL)

As always, some parts turned out to be to hard to do with a bike (kilometer 15-21 off TPXL 16 and kilometer 63-68 off TPXL 20 Elizondo - Hermita) so I had to turn back and find a way around them. On TPXL 9N-b some roads were closed due to the mating season for deer, so I took a direct route from Coll de Nargo to La Pobla de Segur instead.

The whole trip took me about 6 weeks, including a 3 day stay in Barcelona, a 3 day stay in San Sebastian and a 2 day hike in National Park Ordesa y Monte Perdido, but it can be done in a lot less. (the trip has 21-23 stages with 1500 to 2000 meters elevation gain each)

To carry my bike on my back I simply strap it to my (nearly empty)backpack. This was the first time I tried, and it worked very well.
