FilmFestFriday: Bikepacking Videos That Bend Time
FilmFestFriday, back in action… here are 4 videos that all do a nice job of melting time away. A couple of these I have watched on multiple occasions. Enjoy.
Usually I have some sort of theme to attach to a grouping. I guess if I was to build a case for this collection it would be that they each do a good job transporting the viewer to the time and space that the video was filmed. They each individually tell the story of what bikepacking is all about, in their own way.
A Nomad’s Life
This video gave me a few goosebumps the first time I watched it. Then I made Gin watch it. A well done storyline for a greater journey. If you’ve been on a long distance bike tour, you’ll get it. If you haven’t, you’ll still probably get it and it will probably make you want to go.
Another one in the spirit of fun from those adventuristas at the Republic of Doom. Climbing, check. Packrafting, check. Bikepacking, check. Hijinks, check. Badass, check.
I keep hearing about this place, and I know I will have to go one day. If you have missed this, watch it, if you’ve seen it, waste another 13 minutes. The intro monologue pretty much says it all: “There’s something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sound of the genuine in yourself. He’s the only true guide you’ll ever have, and if you cannot hear it, you’ll spend all of your days on the ends of strings that somebody else pulls.”
Fishing the Oregon Troutback
I myself probably would have done the 360 mile bike ride and saved this for the following weekend. But sometimes it’s nice to use the bike to get somewhere and just relax in nature. Nicely done video from Russ at Path Less Pedaled.
