Our good friends at BikeRadar have been on a bikepacking adventure for their latest Diaries vlog. Gravel regulars Jack and Felix bring along newbie Simon.

A committed roadie who is usually more at home in a Premier Inn and getting aero at a time trial, Simon is taught the ways of knobbly tyres, many cafe stops and sleeping on the floor.

The trio were riding a Tour de Fer 30, Croix de Fer 40 and Fugio 30 to get the full gamut of the gravel experience – hopefully you’ll enjoy going along for the ride…
