The bikepacking community is small, and because of that, many of us know one another. Recently one of our own, JD Pauls was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer. Blackburn put together a great film that exemplifies JD’s spirit and attitude as he finished the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route prior to being diagnosed. Maybe one of the best feelings he has ever had, that is until he beats cancer. Support JD if you can by contributing to his efforts in paying for and fighting this horrible disease. We wish you and your family only the best, JD.

    Thanks for sharing JD! Stay strong brother!

    • Thanks man! It’s been a year! Still no bike but love watching that. Next step in treatment should be to get back on my bike! Maybe I’ll try to ride a mile again. Thanks for all the support from the bikepacking tribe.

    • Spelt my own name wrong. Lol. Must be the chemo fog.
