Bikepacken van Tongeren naar Modena

In augustus 2020 heb ik in een opwelling snel een route samengesteld, Bikepacken van Tongeren naar Modena. Het doel was om een Filipijnse mountainbiker te ontmoeten die in Modena woont. Een neef van mijn vriend Lobo, die ontmoette ik tijdens het fietsen in de Filippijnen. de eindbestemming was uiteindelijk Bologna. Dit omdat ik met de bus naar huis wilde en in Modena geen fiets-bus kon boeken. Bus geboekt en klaar om te vertrekken, met een deadline van 14 dagen. Genoeg tijd!

It was a first for me on many accounts; My first vacation outside of Europe, my first time in a plane, my first vacation without a car or motorcycle to bring me everywhere I desire. And it was also my first real bikepacking, except for some small trips in my home environment. Preparation It was difficult to find good information on how and where to go bikepacking in the Philippines. So I joined a bikepacking group on Facebook to get some information. On this group everyone was pointing me in the direction of one guy, Dru. Dru had an YouTube channel about bikepacking and was going to organize an 4-days bikepacking in the Mountain Province. He immediately invited me to join in on this trip, so there it was, my first plans for the adventure.
