Oscar Jenkinson – The Great Divide

Oscar set off in September on the Great divide bikepacking route, aboard his custom Sven Cycles 29+ Rohloff touring bike.

Word is he’s had the time of his life, he’s had a few nights close to hypothermia, which inspired buying all new kit, bar the bike! It seems every time he thinks hes over a mountain range and heading for warmer climbs, he heads back up a mountain and back into impassable roads and snow.

Hes currently in New Mexico, following Cass Gilberts (@whileoutriding) Route, and will be back before Christmas.

Check out his Instagram for more updates @oscarjenkinson and make sure you read about his bike pump mugging.. its very entertaining. 

The last three photos in the gallery are from the Sven’s shakedown ride we went on while planning the route for Brother In The Wild 2019.
