When you feel the call of the sea as much as bikepacker Erkki Punttila it just makes sense to pilot your boat to an isolated island. In Not Far From Home, Punttila takes his boat to a remote island close to his home for an overnight adventure. “Later on you won’t remember all the details of the suffering, but you will feel the sense of accomplishment and have a great story to tell. Just go out there and do it your way,” Punttila says. Find more from Kona Bikes.
