A 5 month gestation: Upper Mustang goes live

Filed under: bike — Tags: , , — danmilner @ 7:19 pm

Five months.

That’s how long I’ve been buzzing from our Nepal Upper Mustang bike mission last October. Trips like that one are the lifeblood of adventure photographers, the kind of thing that delivers rewards on all fronts -mental, physical and … well, spiritual (kind of). After pedalling and shooting what was probably the most demanding bike trip I’ve ever undertaken in 26 years of mountain biking, the first feature to emerge from our labours is out in print now in the USA’s Bicycling magazine, the written stuff penned by the legend that is Rob Story. It also happens that our feature represents a first for Bicycling with the inclusion of a mountain biking feature. I guess it took something epic like this to start the ball rolling eh?

If you’re sleeplessly itching to read the mag and just can’t wait, you can see an online gallery of shots from the trip here.

And if that doesn’t for some unforseable reason appease the wannado within you , then here’s a 3 minute film that Osprey packs edited together from the GoPro footage I shot during the adventure. Yes we were using their very adventure-worthy packs.

And yes, I will get round to editing a full 10 minute docu-drama of the whole trip… soon. Watch this space.
