THE WOLFBORN TOUR BACK HOME
We, as Treshombres, are about to start another big Bikepacking tour very soon! Apart of our passion for cycling, traveling and seeking for adventures, it also has one great symbolic meaning for us, as we are coming back home. We are riding back to Europe, after living among other cultures for the last few years.
Our passion for traveling, cycling, exploring and adventures pushed us to link them all together and ride back home! We are going to cycle through different countries in the South East Asia, Northern Asia and through a part of Europe in order to get back to Munich in Germany.
Thus, this adventure is not just about wandering these parts of the world, discovering cultures, others and ourselves, it's also about promoting among people, what traveling on a bicycle really is. This is Bikepacking. Awakening the minds of people thirsty of traveling about this amazing experience of independency and being in symbiosis with surroundings and the nature. This Pilgrimage is a life changing experience and we would like to show how beautiful and unforgettable it can be!

As we are representing our own brand, we are about to travel on a new CycleCross bicycle model - TRESHOMBRES the WOLFBORN, which, thanks to its "off road" features, will help us get through the multiple diffcult stages of the Route we are going to follow. The WOLFBORN frame is a full carbon, super light frameset with flat mount disc brakes and a special carbon fork which allows us install a front rack. BLACKBURN DESIGN provided us with their high quality bags which combine great convience and a good look!
