 Learn the differences and similarities between backpacking and bikepacking. Take the backcountry tools you may already have and re-purpose them for travel by bike! The goal of this workshop is for you to feel empowered, knowing that many of the same systems and fundamentals of (ultra-light) backpacking apply equally effectively in bikepacking. We will show you how little new gear you really need to buy, while also recommending what gear to buy first as you upgrade to more of a dedicated bikepacking system.
