This time last year, VIDA Ambassador Holly Borowski set out her first bikepacking route on the Kokopelli Trail. During this trip she fell in love with simplicity of mountain biking all day in beautiful scenery, and the autonomous feeling of having her daily essentials along for the ride. You can read all about it in her blog Going the Distance— Holly's First Bikepacking Adventure. Since then, Holly has been scheming an even bigger adventure and last month she completed the Arizona Trail (AZT). Read on about her journey, and learn some tips for your next (or first) bikepacking endeavor.
VIDA Ambassador Michelle from Minneapolis has been keeping it hardcore in the city and striving to get more women out on the trails. We can't wait to reunite with her and get her to her first VIDA clinic next week! In the meantime, Michelle paused to share some of her feelings regarding the upcoming clinic.
