Watch Max and the BPS 400 crew battle the elements on one of the wettest weekends this year, to bike pack through South East Queensland’s picturesque Scenic Rim.

The BPS 400 is a challenging but achievable and super scenic bikepacking ride through some of South East Queensland’s most rugged trails. Perfect for adventure-seekers; from beginners to hardcore ultra cycling racers, the BPS 400 has the right amount of gravel, remote sections, and rough-as-guts track for all riders to tackle.


But it’s not all wheel-turning, there are some good old-fashioned local country cafes and heritage pubs along the way to quench the thirst. Most riders finish the BPS 400 in about 4 days, (the current fastest known time is 30 hours 53 minutes).

I created BPS because being outdoors and bikepacking is my ultimate passion, and I wanted to inspire people to experience what this mode of adventure has to offer. I create exciting bikepacking routes and host rides that whet the appetite of newbies and give experienced bikepackers a ride to remember.



But this year, as interest in the BPS 400 ride peaked, I decided to film the whole ride from start to finish — the good, bad, and the downright ugly so people can see the reality of bike packing. I knew my iPhone video wouldn’t cut it, so I hooked up with Aussie creatives, Harrison Candlin and Blake Gannon from Limmel Co who 100% nailed the fun and laughter, the grit and the agony of this ride.



The BPS 400 film captures the riders pushing through torrential rain, thick, rubbery mud and coping with a series of physical and mental challenges along the way. I admit, I didn’t expect it to end like this…..
