Liam Yates

Lifelong multidisciplinary cyclist


Ashdown Forest, England

As a lifelong cyclist, Liam has never been one to turn down a two-wheeled adventure. Coming from a family of cyclists, it’s no wonder that Liam looks so at home on a bike and his passion for the sport has seen him participate in nearly every cycling discipline. From BMX to fixed gear crit racing, Liam has shown himself to be a dedicated, talented and versatile athlete.

In 2018, Liam used an Apidura saddle pack for an overnighter, marking the beginning of a partnership that has since seen him work with us on projects and adventures than span bikepacking and ultra-distance racing. Not only is he an excellent advocate for cycling, but Liam is also actively involved in bringing new people into the sport at a grassroots level through his annual gravel ride in the heart of Southern England, the SSX Mystery Tour.
