Commencal Insiders – Kathmandu

Exploring Nepalese Bike Culture

May 16th, 2013

Commencal’s Insiders series is always a good watch; this one takes us into the culture of Kathmandu…


Far away from the cliché of a wild Nepal, which would be ideal for a backpacking trip, our shaper and rider Pierre-Edouard Ferry went on to share his knowledge and expertise with Kathmandu’s youngsters. In a city where paradoxes are found at every corner and which teems with life in a doomsday atmosphere, pumptrack riding can be perceived as the symbol of a whole new generation of Nepalese riders for whom riding as a mean of escape. The wheel is spinning in Nepal.


What a trip… what’s the farthest you’ve taken a bike?
