Despite having an amazing winter season, it’s hard not to reminisce about fall “fat packing” where multiple layers and toe warmers are optional. With the Yukon having a rich mining history, it is scarred with plenty of old roads that now serve as adventure highways. This shot is from the middle of a mountain traverse connecting two roads into a beautiful loop.

I set off from my hometown of Lille, France, to visit my bikepacking buddy in Brussels, Belgium. On the way, I enjoyed my first night outside of 2023. Temperatures are still very low in the region, but the happiness of getting back to sleep under the stars made the experience extra special.

An impromptu solo ride from my house to the Black Mountains following the rutted and stoney trail past Grwyne Fawr Reservoir to the peak of the mountain last Saturday. It was really exposed and barely a path to follow down the other side. Amazing the places you can get to by bike, even with limited light in February!
