Bikepacking Gear

What is Bikepacking?

Bikepacking is adventure.  Bikepacking is loading everything you need for a trip and pedaling into the wilderness.  It can be an overnight trip on the edge of town or a 500 mile trip solo or with friends across state lines.  It means packing light, riding mellow.

Bikepacking is hiking by bike.

Except you get to see way more country than you could hiking along.

What makes a great Bikepacking Bike? 

Bikepacking Bikes are reliable workhorses with comfortable frame geometries, reliable components,no frills, often with big wide tires, and plenty of frame mounts to attach racks and frame bags, and panniers to.

Speaking or bikepacking gear, we've included a great selection of super strong racks, frame bags, panniers and tires that we've found to work great out on the trail.

Stop in the shop to learn more about bikepacking and to see when we're leading our next bikepacking trip.
