Pachamama: Bikepacking Buds

Exploring the English countryside with Terra

Dare to push your limits, leave your comfort zone behind and immerse yourself in unforgettable adventures. Gravel and bikepacking come together in perfect harmony to give you a unique exploration challenge, experience life from a different perspective, expand your horizons and connect with nature in its truest form.

Bikepacking is a way of traveling by bicycle that combines adventure and freedom. The secret of its popularity lies in its simplicity and accessibility, a return to the traveler’s roots. The development of better gravel bikes and, of course, the inspiration of getting off the beaten track and into natural surroundings have also contributed.

TO VENTURE INTO BIKEPACKING WITH A GRAVEL BIKE IS TO LIVE THE EXPERIENCE OF CONNECTING WITH THE ESSENCE OF THE JOURNEY TO THE FULLEST

This is the idea behind Bikepacking Buds, an inclusive cycling community founded and led by women who don’t hesitate to challenge their limits, show their strength and overcome barriers. Why not take to their bikes and camp out in the woods, even in the middle of the harsh British winter? Freezing and sub-zero temperatures don’t sound like the ideal scenario for outdoor camping, or maybe they do?

At the heart of this adventure beats a bond with nature, the excitement of sharing knowledge, getting out of the routine and enjoying the feeling of freedom that only a bike can give you.

This is the spirit that we at Orbea promote through our Pachamama project: to vindicate the bicycle as a link with the earth, people and their stories. With this initiative we seek to discover special places in the world to enjoy with our gravel, but also to value the history, culture, landscapes and the people who take care of them.
