Weekend Warmup #132

Sandbagger's Choice // How to Run Out of Daylight while Mountain Biking

My first ever visit to the Chilcotins was an exercise in having my ass handed to me. Josh Hall and Chris Clark were world-class fit, and I thought I was ‘close enough’ to hang. I was wrong, and the weather didn’t help me out. So when they returned a couple weeks later to complete their planned route without me, the ride stuck in the back of my mind.

Six years later and many, many trips to ride in South Chilcotin Provincial Park, and I have become intimately familiar with the mountain ranges, routes, lakes, and streams that make up the region, and the distances between them that compound to a huge scale. Late last summer, I finally felt ready to go for redemption on that first ride—if only to get it out of my mind. I called on Zanny Venner and Joel Ducrot to join me on the big ride…and what better way to sandbag our chances of success than to bring a camera and tripod to tell the story?

For anyone interested, I’d highly recommend our approximate route as a bikepacking trip with one or two nights camping along the way. For most riders, I wouldn’t recommend it as a day trip, without a detailed, first-hand knowledge of the route, and a clear understanding of the consequences of coming up short. - Peter Wojnar

SIGHT UNSEEN: Guatemala with Brice Shirbach

Sight Unseen has, until this point, been about first encounters with a previously unridden. In the third season, creator Brice Shirbach deepens the discovery journey by seeking not only a new trail, but also his first experience of Guatemalan culture. The visually stunning series encourages discovery, captures the flow state, and celebrates getting out of the comfort zone.

Bikepacking the Cordillera Real in the Bolivian Andes

I can say with absolute certainty, that this was the most memorable cycling experience of my life. One for which I am eternally thankful for, and one that changed all of us, and created lifelong friends. I am pleased to be able to share this with everyone. My life has been chaos for the last 6 years, producing weekly videos. I am certainly not complaining but this somehow slipped through the cracks and can finally see the light of day. - Nate Hills
