All About Bike Packing with REI’s Paul Calandrella on The Consummate Athlete Podcast
Obviously, I am currently obsessed with bikepacking. And backpacking, actually, now that I’ve gotten the bug. So, it was super exciting to get REI’s Paul Calandrella on The Consummate Athlete Podcast to chat all things bikepacking, from gear to common mistakes to best tips for beginners to get started.

Paul was really knowledgable and a ton of fun to chat with—and he has some great stories! (If you’re worried this episode will be a huge gear list of swag you need, don’t worry—we touch on gear, but Paul was all about getting started using what you already have.)
We have a HUGE scary goal I’m working towards for September that involves some amount of camping, so this was a good lead-in for me… And there’s going to be a lot more on it coming up, so stay tuned! In the meantime…
