Bikepacking & Off-road Cycle Touring Guide
How to prepare, plan & undertake extended bikepacking adventures.
The Bikepacking & Off-Road Cycle Touring Guide provides a tool kit of skills and knowledge for cyclists who want to get off the beaten track and undertake extended bikepacking tours, with a focus on travelling light.
While this book is aimed at cyclists planning long distance off-road oriented tours, the information within contains many gems that are applicable in any bikepacking scenario, long or short.
The evolution of bikepacking bikes, luggage, technology and know-how have made off road cycle touring adventures more possible than ever. There are a huge variety of published bikepacking routes all over the world, and the information to plan our own lies just an Internet search away, or within detailed maps and imagery that we can access on our phones. This book will help you organise your own adventure.
In the Bikepacking & Off-Road Cycle Touring Guide adventure bikepackers Mark Watson and Hana Black draw on their wealth of outdoor experience to provide their view of travelling by bike: how to travel long and light on adventurous routes while having fun along the way.
