Bikepacking vs bike touring comes down to whether you attach your stuff directly to your bike vs to panier racks. Keeping weight in line with your bike frame using bikepacking bags allows for a more nimble ride on rougher trails. For Kokopelli trail, I wanted to carry as little as possible while also being comfortable during chilly nights and pretty self sufficient in case of something unexpected

Two weeks and more than 500 kilometers through the Simien Mountains National Park and remote Ethiopian villages - longtime friends Eric and Campbell took a once in a lifetime #bikepacking trip through Northern Ethiopia. They chose to travel by bike to truly live and breathe the environment, to connect with the locals, and to learn as much about the culture as they could. Prepped and ready to go, the journey began with clean bikes and perfectly packed Outpost bags. 📷: @studiebolt #getoutthere #baaw #blackburndesign

We saw mountains, desert and the sea all via our mountain bikes and it really couldn’t have been any sweeter. Even the tough shit ended up being funny, and certainly the most memorable. That’s how it goes, that’s why we do these things. We did what we set out to do, spend time with old friends, see some cool shit, camp in beautiful and weird places, complain about our crotches hurting, eat morning camp oatmeal out of bags and ride... a lot. We did it. #woundedkneetour #LaurCat #bikepacking #stagecoach300

I’m about to hop on my bike and pedal some pavement and some gravel into the mountains for the afternoon. I don’t ride my bike that way very often. Normally, it’s more like this photo—loaded, in the middle of nowhere, for multi-day trips. I don’t own any of those lycra jerseys with logos on them. I don’t have a road bike or a mountain bike. I don’t have aerodynamic funny sunglasses or some special drink concoction that has protein in it or whatever. I don’t Strava my rides, because they’re usually to the bank or post office on a fixed-gear with a basket on the front. A couple times a year, I’ll outfit one of my commuter bikes with some bags and I’ll flip-flop about what shoes to wear and how much food to bring and which @goalzero solar panel will be best. But while I’m doing this, I’m just further ignoring the obvious: my total lack of cycling “fitness.” But it has nothing to do with muscle or endurance. A day or so after starting each bikepacking trip, my privates start to hurt a lot and I end up stand-up-pedaling for a few days.
Last fall’s short trip through western Montana was no exception. By the time I’m toughened-up down there, my bike ride is usually ending, since I don’t do many long bikepacking trips these days. Plus, I usually wear jean shorts.
I created a short video about what it’s like to be on one of these solo, unsupported trips through rural landscapes, and the @outsidemagazine link is in my profile. Even riding in the continental USA, I’ll sometimes go more than a day without seeing a town. On these rides, I spend the majority of the time off-pavement. Sometimes it’s pavement, sometimes it’s loose gravel, sometimes deep sand. This surface is usually what determines whether I’m tying to squeak out 30 miles in 12 hours, or I’m pushing 120-mile days while fully loaded with all of my camping gear.
I see you folks with 19-pound bikes...I bet those are pretty nice.

#srmrno1 was the ultimate bike test so I decided to build my ultimate bike, aka ‘Monster Munch’. Unlike the rider it performed flawlessly. @tritonbikes built me the perfect custom Ti Monstercross frame - fast, strong, light, compliant, great value. @dcrwheels did a great job as usual with the @mcfk / Cx-Ray /Son28/DTS wheelset coming in at 1750g (28-spoke Carbon wheels are plenty strong enough for bikepacking if built well - still completely true after the race). The @envecomposites rigid MTN fork was superb throughout and the @garbaruk_components 10-50 cassette with Force 1 RD runs as smooth as any of my other drivetrains (Ultegra, XO1, Red22). The @juintech X1 cable-actuated hydro brakes are the new gold standard for this type of event - reliable, lots of power and stupidly easy to setup. The @whiteind crankset, 34T ring and BB was bombproof and didn’t drop the chain once. Finally big thanks to @rockgeist for getting the custom bags over at short notice - rock solid, great fit and quality.

Testing out some gear at El Corte de Madera Creek Preserve for a foray into bikepacking with a mountain bike. Very pleased with the results so far. Riding a size small frame, it is challenging to stick with bags from one manufacturer, so this is a collection of luggage options from several different producers. I am hopeful this setup is going to work well for an extended trip.

In fact, much of the time plans are important only for giving you the excuse and the impetus to get out of the door.
Make a plan, by all means. But be alert that the objective is not the objective. (It is the exercise, the clear air and clarity of thought, the company, and the 'No Service' on your phone.)
The plan hatched by @anke_is_awesome [please follow her as I promised that in return for her local adventure expertise I would try to get her up to 500 followers!] sounded fab: bike through a forest, packraft across a lake and up a river to enjoy a swim in a beautiful waterfall before setting up camp.
My favourite aspect of bikepacking is how much stuff you can do with so little stuff. With the bags on the bike frame and a small backpack we were equipped for biking, hiking, camping, and packrafting. I kicked myself for forgetting a fishing rod.
The sun shone, the Bavarian Alps were splendid, the lake was an astonishing chalky blue, and I was in ridiculously over-excited mood as we pedalled into the forest. I love how well bikes handle with bikepacking gear compared to the chunky panniers of my youthful cycling journeys. The ride feels fast and light. I hammered off down the singletrack path, swooping and curving and generally feeling rather pleased with life.
Arriving at the lakeshore where we planned to launch our packrafts, we saw that the wind was far too strong for us to be able to paddle. (Part 1: fail)
Instead we hopped back on the bikes to ride all the way round the perimeter of the lake to our waterfall river. There we discovered that the epic summer of 2018 had dried up our waterfall. (Part 2: fail)
But it is hard to feel too much of a failure when you're riding your bike on a sunny day. So we leaped into one of the clearest, most inviting rivers I have ever swum in, as turquoise and clear as a swimming pool but without the veruccas and chlorine. It was as perfect as a river can ever be.

I ride to a gas station at 5AM for my routine breakfast sandwich through tornado-like winds that nearly push me off my bike. I meet @talktomarkroland, @erikdouds, and @taylor.gorman.24 there and we take cover in a steel car wash — probably not the smartest place to be during a thunderstorm. Facing each other, Taylor and I simultaneously scream as we both see horizontal lightening over each other’s shoulders.
-
We eat first, second, and third breakfast before finally hitting the road. As we ride out of town, we see a road bike with bikepacking bags parked by a convenience store which can only mean one thing — TransAm racer! We meet Jon Lester who would come in second in the Trans Am Bike Race (@transambikerace), an insane competition that follows our 4,300-mile route in the opposite direction. In between chocolate milk sips, he eats a pack of mini doughnuts and tells us how he wiped out in the rain and eventually had to take cover in someone’s barn.
