Bikepacking, cycle touring or cyclocamping…call it what you will, just give it a try
The preoccupation in this country with cycling as a sport makes it easy to overlook the excitement and adventure offered by cycle touring – a pursuit as old as the bicycle itself.
Now reinvented by some as ‘bikepacking’, the business of setting off to ride and camp, taking with you only as much as you can carry, is as pure a cycling experience as you can have.
The excellent bikepacking.com describes ‘a synthesis of mountain biking and minimalist camping; it evokes the freedom of multi-day back-country hiking, with the range and thrill of riding a mountain bike. It’s about forging places less travelled, both near and afar, via single-track trails, gravel, and abandoned dirt roads, carrying only essential gear’.
This new breed of bikepacker might dream of adventures through the red deserts of the American west, but don’t let the lure of far flung destinations stop you starting with a short overnight route near home.
