Bikepacking with Joe Cruz: Stories, Images, and a Fearless Approach to Just Doing It

joeCruz

Joe Cruz has bikepacked everywhere, listen to his stories and see how it’s done.

Speaking from a lifetime of bikepacking experience, Joe Cruz is coming to Ride Studio Cafe May 26 at 7pm to share what he has seen and done with us. He comes from a broad perspective of world-wide riding adventures and bringing many photos from his travels. Joe lives in western Massachusetts so is familiar with the amazing bikepacking in our own backyard here in New England and across the United States. Much of his talk will focus on bikepacking that is approachable to those newer to it. He will address the fears of new bikepackers and offer his approach to managing fear. As he says, it’s more about the way in which we create our own barriers that need not exist.

Joe is one of the bikepacking originals starting his bikepacking adventures in 1988 and spending significant time each year to trips that most people wouldn’t think to attempt. In his work-life, Joe is a professor of philosophy, and he brings a philosophical and practical approach to the sport.

His talk will be inspiring, motivational, and educational–and someone you shouldn’t miss.
