“Simply put, bikepacking is the synthesis of mountain biking and minimalist camping. It’s about exploring places less traveled, both near and far, via singletrack trails, gravel, and abandoned dirt roads, carrying only essential gear. Ride, eat, sleep, repeat, enjoy!” ~Bikepacking.com, “Bikepacking 101“
There’s so much written about bikepacking that, until we can do an article justice, we’re just going to point you to other sources of information, such as Bikepacking.com’s article, “How to Bikepack.” If you want to learn more about advocacy, access, and new route development, we recommend you join Bikepacking Roots, an organization that is dedicated to the support and advancement of bikepacking and the conservation of the landscapes through which we ride. Membership is free.
