Sand and Snow on the Mojave Road

Looking to break in her new fatbike this winter, Katie set out on the notoriously sandy Mojave Road. Historically a Native American trade route, a 140-mile portion of the route was popularized in the off-roading community in the 1980s.

Loaded up with eight liters of water, 5,000 calories, and extra layers for the cold, Katie was ready for a long day in the saddle. She carried her food, water, and layers using a custom frame bag, top tube bag, a couple roll top stem bags, a roll top hip pack in handlebar bag mode, and a prototype seat bag. 

When the overcast day turned into a snowstorm, Katie was glad she was able to carry everything she needed to get over the snowy pass to where the warm van was waiting.
