The beauty of bikepacking in the Atacama Desert

Browsing YouTube last night we’ve seen a short but beautiful film drop in from Osprey. 

Rider and Osprey ambassador Lorraine Blancher set off to do a multi day bikepacking trip through the Atacama desert. The resulting film Beyond Trails: Atacama will make you want to load up your bike and set off in search of similar trails.

“Every new trail you travel, on or off the beaten path, brings uncertainty. Riding bikes in a place like this forces you to pay attention to the terrain and listen closely to suggestions on how to move through it. Instead of success and failure, you come to think in terms of adaptation and forward motion.”

Film by the mega talented Wildland Media
