Library Program: Bikepacking the Balkans
July 6, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
On Thursday, July 6, at 7:00 p.m., Michael Intrabartola and Michele Drozd will present Bikepacking the Balkans: Three Countries, Three Months, Two Wheels at the Belden Noble Memorial Library.
Bikepacking is an off-road version of bicycle touring with a focus on self-supported adventure, technical terrain, and a cross-country style of riding. In the Fall of 2016, Michael and Michele packed their bikes and went to the Balkans to look for dirt and to explore the mountains of Southeastern Europe. What they found was an incredible mix of stunning scenery, delicious food, wonderful people, and some of the best riding yet to be discovered. Their route took them from the island of Corfu through Albania, Montenegro, and Greece; a true bike odyssey.
The event is free and open to the public.
