Bikepacking--or backpacking by mountain bike--is an increasingly popular way to enjoy the outdoors. Join us to learn about a fun choice for cycling buddies, couples or even families who like to ride together and are looking for a new way to venture out on their mountain bike(s). Bikepacking lets you cover more miles than hiking plus you can access dirt roads and trails that may be inaccessible to other vehicles. In this class we will cover various aspects of bikepacking including outfitting your bike, gear to bring, and trip planning tips.
