Travelling Light and Long

Long and Light – the way of the Dirt Brevet

By Simon Kennett, as published in NZ MTBer

There’s a new style of mountain biking slowly spreading across the globe – call it a dirt brevet, bikepacking, or fat tyre randoneering if you like. It doesn’t matter. It’s about travelling light and covering big distances. Eighty kilometres a day is good for a starter; 250 kilometres isn’t out of the question. When that includes gravel roads and dirt tracks, you can expect to be riding from dawn to dusk.
