About Pannier

Unhurried, since 2012


We love to explore and discover the world.
We believe the best way to do this is on a bike. 

We love the simplicity and freedom of life on two wheels.
We want to champion those who travel by bike and inspire and enable others to pedal off on their own adventures.

We love seeking adventure, however hard or easy, long or short.
We want to run the best bikepacking/adventure cycling tours and events, and provide the best kit & bikes for travelling cyclists…

We love to tell stories.
We want to share the experiences of those who make the journey of a lifetime, and those who spend their lifetime on a journey.


Old maps  //  New journeys  //  Planning the next adventures  //  Getting lost  //  Perfectly laid-out kit grids  //  Packing chaos the night before  //  Mug dangling  //  Old drover roads  //  Chevron climbs  //  Paved alpine passes  //  Never-ending gravel switchbacks  //  Snood-up headwinds  //  Shirt-flapping tailwinds  //  Wild-swims in ice-cold rivers  //  Faffing  //  Ferry hops  //  Sleeper trains  //  Nick Crane books  //  Legendary locals  //  Foraging for firewood  //  Campfire beers // Slow cooked one-pot meals  //  Recouping in refuges  //  Bustling bothys  //  Wild camping on exposed moors  //  The pitter-patter of the rain on the tent  //  Collecting water from wild streams  //  Brewing a posh morning coffee  //  3-in-1 coffee sachets  //  Nutella  //  Every new day on the road...
