While this story may not involve a loaded bike, the message gives you a bikepacking perspective. Ty Hathaway, better known as Tytanium on instagram, explores Los Angeles – a rather unfriendly cycling city at first glance, but when you go a bit further, it tends to bring you to some incredible places with views and the desolation you dream of. Believe it or not Los Angeles has that, you just need to work for it. This is a part of the Adventure Dispatch series brought to you by Specialized. A series of videos that covers adventures of athletes such as Ty Hathaway, Sarah Swallow, Steve Fassbinder, and Ultraromance. Over the next few months Specialized will release short documentary films dedicated to each athlete, as well as how-to videos to teach riders what they need to know – from fixing flats to choosing routes. Stay tuned for more, for now enjoy this trailer.
