Personal setups » BikePacking Romania – first trip, first setup (mtbikerfromberendrecht)
I discovered this site a while ago, and I’ve been coming back to it daily.
When I was a student (early 90’s), I made quite a lot of “biketouring” trips.
But all things evolve and biketouring became bikepacking (sounds cooler to me).
So a couple of months ago, I decided to start making my own gear
and to go on a 1 week BP tour with a friend.
Where? When you live in Belgium, you have a lot of options to go all over Europe.
So we picked Romania.
Well, my buddy Dave (who’s an American btw), his great grandfather comes from Romania and he always wanted to visit the village where his family came from.
But, enough pre-history, let’s take a look at the set-up (see photos).
Here’s my list:
Please feel free to comment and/or add your remarks.
I’m always eager to learn from other bikepackers.
