Yakima holdup Evo +2 bike rack unboxing and install

I’m pretty excited by this, I have the new freshly released Yakima Hold Up Evo. In this video I explain and put together this 4-bike rack. This bike rack is going to get a lot of use going on mountain bike missions.

The top of the South Island of New Zealand has rapidly become a destination for backcountry cyclists. Like all good ideas, this one, to ride the Old Ghost Road and Heaphy Track in one grand loop, was thrown about over a few beers in a bike shop in Richmond, Nelson. Two riders, Damian Stones and Erik Hall completed this 6-day adventure in mid-winter on gravel bikes. Recent snowfalls, and a first bike packing trip for Erik, made this journey all the more challenging.

Heaphy Track New Zealand bikepacking backcountry adventure

The Heaphy track is one of the iconic backcountry trails in New Zealand and we are lucky enough to have this in our backyard. Come along on a journey through the Heaphy with us. As a family we try to do this once a year, this year only 3 of us made it, but it was still as memorable as ever.

I'm always keen to get into the Backcountry, but then reality gets in the way to fit in that epic multi-day trip! We are lucky in Nelson to have a lot of options to get your back country fix without going far. New for me on this trip was my ACR ResQlink Personal locator beacon from SAR Dynamics. I couldn't be more happier about this, to have the support from SAR Dynamics is fantastic.

Woohoo I am on the New Zealand Jetboil team. I am really stoked to join Jetboil. I'm looking forward to using their equipment from one day MTB missions through to multi day bike packer backcountry trips.
