Full marks for being different.

No my cup of tea though, skipped it forward and stopped early

That, Mr Barter, is absolute gold.

I like the Slovenia film too. Just the kind of thing to make me scream "feck it!!!" and call in sick for a couple of years.

I liked it too, because it was different and the message was good and i liked the style. The method of tongue-in-cheek worked well :-bd I've been to Slovenia (not on the bike) and it looks amazing for riding - and it's very beautiful.

Yeah that was brilliant, no Mumford and sons soundtrack, crying, or wistful guff.

I really enjoyed that, thought it was good. Nice to see some other ideas put into a bikepacking video.

Whether you like it or not is one thing but it is well made, the edit is excellent.

Very well put together and brought a smile to my face, so they must be doing something right! :grin:

Thanks for sharing, Stu. Can't remember the last time I watched something as entertaining as this!
Hipsters with a sense of humour - who even knew that existed?!

Slovenia is a great place for bike touring, and I'd go back in a heartbeat. I'm sure I was being watched by the bears in some of those forests, but sadly didn't see any. Probably as I was too focussed on keeping my stupid hipster gravel bike upright on the trails...!

Thank you for that! I love the video and it's definitely made me want to visit there even more. My dad goes to Slovenia every year or 2 and always tells me how great it is, I'm beginning to think he may be on to something!

I enjoyed that!

A nice change.

I did a little 3 day beerpacking trip in/around Slovenia last year and even though I saw only one tiny corner of it I was really impressed and can't wait to go back.

Nice. Further confirming my suspicions I should bugger off from work.

Same here - liked the film and liked the place (climbing trip years ago)... was hoping to get to the Euro packraft meet there this year but postponed for now.
