Rachel Davies first visited Aotearoa at seven years old and knew it was somewhere she wanted to return. When she moved to Wellington, she started out as a kayak guide. Her next adventure took her on a three week bikepacking adventure around the South Island – the longest bikepacking trip she had done. She fell in love with the pace of biking and had several more adventures and shorter bikepacking trips, including a hectic 32 hour race around the Banks Peninsula, where crossing the finish line alone was a massive achievement. Rachel Davies is also a watercolour artist and combines her love for the outdoors with her artwork by creating short guides to educate and inform people about outdoor skills and activities, from packrafting, hiking in the backcountry, skiing and of course, bikepacking. There is still more that Rachel hasn’t explored in Aotearoa and she says she will definitely be back again soon!
