For Clement, riding his bike as a little boy was the best way to explore his neighbourhood. He soon turned his hand to BMX racing, and a love for two wheels was firmly established. After a brief love affair with his moped as a teenager, Clement returned to riding his bike, using it every day, and in all weather conditions. However, once Clement started to look further afield, and travel with his bike, a new world of possibilities opened up to him. Now he enjoys nothing more than riding and racing with friends, and generally using his bike to go anywhere and everywhere.

Next Bikepacking Challenge:
My next challenge will be to ride the Highland Trail 550 in Scotland, and then the Northcape 4000, riding from Italy to the northernmost tip of Norway.
Advice for New Bikepackers:
“Go outside, don’t hesitate, don’t wait, everything could be an adventure. Make your own experience.”
