“Dude I’ve been trying to get ahold of you!” Cedar had been calling me and leaving messages for a couple days. I’d been ignoring them because… life. (sorry man!) He caught me one day while doing some work at a coffee shop. “What would you think about doing a demo ride/bikepacking trip with Advocate Cycles right after Interbike?” “Well heck,” I thought, “I’ve asked, practically begged, two other bike companies to do this with me in the past…” Advocate Cycles is a legit up-and-comer bike brand in the adventure-by-bike segment.
