Bikepacking adventures are all about being self-sufficient and that includes keeping your wheels rolling.

Suitability: Open to all

A buckled wheel, snapped chain, ripped tyre or damaged gears can quickly transform a great trip into a disaster - Pete Mcneil from Adventure Pedlars will show you how to keep going when the mechanical monsters conspire against you.
