🇮🇳 People & Places: Micayla Gatto in India
Micayla’s story opens with the following lines:
I’m standing outside a hut at the base of the Himalaya, in a tiny village only accessible by foot, being sprayed with cow urine.
Wait, what? Well, if you want to get a true lesson in cultural differences, go to the small villages under the Himalayas, as a woman, on your period. And see what happens… Fortunately, this is not the only jaw dropping thing India has in store. Check out the video and then read up the full story on FreeHub.
🤯 Via Ferrata on a Mountain Bike
Just an edge of the seat ride down a Via Ferrata trail in the Dolomites by Kilian Bron. Nothing more to say to this, other than nod my head in acknowledgment.
💉 How to: Bleed your breaks
If you’ve ever experienced sloppy breaks, you probably have air in your breaks. Learn how to bleed them at home and as a bonus learn how your hydraulic breaks actually work.
🎒 Gear review: Evoc Stage Backpack
I love my Osprey Raptor, but Evoc has been putting out some really nice backpacks lately. It’s got plenty of organization compartments and uses Evoc’s Air Flow Contact System to keep its cool.
