'Admissions Of An Amateur Bikepacker' (film)
Updated: Oct 24, 2019
This is a beautifully shot little feature by a filmmaker called Ben Johnson who decided to document his first ever bikepacking trip... across the Andes.
I found it a great reminder that adventure is sometimes giving something a go when you have no idea what you're doing or how to do it, when you might fail and when it's highly likely that things will go to shit (literally in this case).
You can feel his unvarnished pain and effort, alongside the magic moments, kind strangers and sheer joy of being out in the wild on your bike. In other words - true to how it usually pans out.
