Learn to Bikeraft
Learn packrafting and bikepacking skills and then how to put the two together for a successful bikerafting adventure on McPhee Reservoir and in the San Juan National Forest. Our goal is to teach you the skills you need to embark on bigger, better cycling and packrafting adventures. So you’ll learn how to lash your bike to your boat, pack your boat on your bike and more. And you’ll ride plenty of single and double track over 3 days. The standard course is 40 miles of riding and seven miles of paddling. But it can be modified with less mileage for less-experienced cyclists. This multi-day adventure is prefect for beginners, though you must have some bike riding skills. No boating skills required. This course is discounted for 2023.
