Riding Wild Bikepacking around the world
 
Oklahoma-born Olivia Cuenca is bikepacking around the world with her partner Eric Timmerman.
Their goal is to:

find, ride, and document some kick ass roads: the entire length of the Himalayas, the Andes, the beaches of Southeast Asia, the Canadian Rockies, the Alps, and a lot of places in between.

Olivia is a slightly less-experienced rider than her partner, but she says this will be easily compensated for by the fact that she is, "smarter, stronger, and more beautiful in every way."
If you like bike touring bloggers with a quick wit and exceptional photography skills, this site's for you.
Olivia rides a Surly Troll and is obsessed with trying to get rid of unnecessary things. She's got her bikepacking set-up slimmed down to just 25lbs of gear (not including her bike or food).  If you're planning your own round-the-world bikepacking trip, be sure to check out Riding Wild's useful gear section.  You'll find information on choosing a bike, sleeping system, clothing, hydration system, and kitchen.
Olivia has just recently finished up a gruelling ride through the Indian Himalaya. Read about her high altitude adventure on the popular Leh-Manali highway here. Next up is Southeast Asia.
Follow along as she searches out jeep tracks, single track, and dirt roads in a quest to discover some of the least explored spots on the planet.
