Bikepacking from Houston to Miami | A French Family Voyage


Adrien & Marlene Lacy

While lounging at the beach in Stuart, Florida, a couple arrived on bikes, towing a carrier of two children. They were clearly tired - having biked some miles through the sun, but remained in good spirits while laughing over baguette sandwiches. Upon hearing more about their 1,200+ mile journey bike-packing across the Southern US, I invited Adrien into the Affuera Vida production studio to record a podcast. He shares the story of how his family of four (Marlene, Robin (5) and Paola (3)) jumped at the opportunity to move from France to Mexico as part of his mechanical engineering career, how bike packing has always been a part of his life and how he made this a family passion.
