The Ultimate How-To Guide, History Of & Wild Adventures Stories About Bikerafting

Buy The Bikeraft Guide!

By Lizzy Scully & Steve “Doom” Fassbinder

Foreword by Roman Dial.

This community multi-media storytelling project ultimately resulted in a comprehensive book on bikerafting. But, along the way we shared some of the book’s chapters, audio interviews through a couple episodes of The Bikeraft Guide Podcast, on and on @TheBikeraftGuide Instagram page and on the Four Corners Guides blog.

We raised sufficient funds to print, distribute (end of May 2021), edit and pay contributors through our IndieGoGo Campaign and the generous sponsors listed below. In 2022, we released the 2nd Edition, which includes a story by Eric Arce along with more historic photos.

This book happened thanks in large part to you – aspiring bikerafters and people who love great adventure stories. Want to get a taste of the book? Check out some of the stories and podcasts we’ve already published:
