Burkard and Batty’s Extraordinary Icelandic Bikepacking Mish Packing List
A couple weeks back we published a back and forth with friend of AJ, Chris Burkard, who’d just returned from a bikepacking mission clear across the entirely of Iceland’s belly, east to west. He rode with a small crew, including Emily Batty, a pro bike racer.
Bikepacking gear is already fascinating, especially so when preparing to ride hundreds of miles through a weather-lashed hunk of ice cold volcanic rock rising out of the frigid North Atlantic. Chris and Emily each made videos of their packing lists for the trip. Check ’em out, below.
