What is bikepacking? Generally, it means going off-road and riding on trails, paths, and varied surfaces. A hybrid activity blurring the line between mountain biking and minimalist bicycle touring, bikepacking can take place over a weekend or several months, by carrying the least amount of equipment possible. When bikepacking, you’ll want to shed the racks and bags that are commonly associated with traditional touring and instead equip your ride with a bag positioned inside the frame (it balances your centre of gravity and improves manoeuvrability). Bikepacking is about exploring, without worrying about the type of terrain you are riding on.
