How To Bikeraft: Bikerafting Resources

If you don’t have our comprehensive guide to bikerafting, The Bikeraft Guide, fear not! The internet and our website are both full of resources for aspiring bikerafters. And here’s a list for you! These are all the bikerafting resources we offer, plus other articles by or about Steve “Doom” Fassbinder and Lizzy Scully. This is not a comprehensive source of ALL bikerafting information. There’s lots of great info online. Do a Google Search. We can’t swear by what you read and so we haven’t included articles that we are not affiliated with. However, most of what we have read or seen has been good, especially stuff by Deane Parker. That guy knows what he’s doing, and he provides a lot of great videos and articles to the bikerafting community.

The Bikeraft Guide Is Still Active In These Places!

Most of these are unabridged chapters from our book. We had to edit many of the chapters of the book to reduce its size, as it is already a beast at 360+ pages.

Video Series on YouTube

We made this series of videos during the pandemic when we didn’t have a lot else to do. We shot them on the Mancos River in front of our cabin at Scullbinder Ranch. The quality isn’t amazing, but the final products are informative and helpful. Doom is a master bikerafter!
