Bikepacking—or backpacking by bike—is a great choice for cycling buddies, couples or even families who ride together. It lets you cover more miles than hiking plus you can access dirt roads and trails that are inaccessible to other vehicles.
Bikepacking is cycle touring off-road, a discipline that has been around as long as people have been riding bikes. However its recent popularity can be linked inextricably to the explosion of lightweight equipment available now.
Backpacking Light now offers a selection of ultralight bikepacking gear.
