    I am willing to suffer heaps to do this.

    I just need to know where to start.

    do I really need a tent? Or a sleeping bag? all that seems heavy.
    Ummm .... I would probably start in Ogden?
    No you don't need a tent you should have a bag/bivy for emergencies.
    Are you following the old Mormon trail? Old Spanish trail? Or just looking for a cool route?
    I dig dirt!

    I'm in!

    Love single track riding but also love the solitude of camping on the bike. Goal it to finish the Great Divide at a touring pace, 1 to 2 months. I'm in the Bay Area so if anyone wants to go bike camping, give me a PM.

    Eric from SE Washington here.

    Thanks for the cool forum. I'm new to bike packing but have quickly developed a passion for it (when my can get away). Like others here I'm not so interested in the gear/geek aspect since there are tons of resources already out there. I am more interested in the adventure reporting with inspiring pics. I'm so amazed at the country out there that people are riding bikes on...totally motivates me to get out more. My own back yard is full of bike packing adventures, I'm just refining my gear and realizing I can do more with less...real experiences teach you well.

    I'm Mathew, just moved to Florida about a year and a half ago and have been riding mountain bikes since mid-2009(after a 10+ year hiatus).

    Really like riding regularly and got inspired by bikepacking threads here on mtbr to make some of my own adventures. I did my first bikepacking trip last fall and looking forward to another this spring. Doing these in Florida is the best way for me to make the trips feasible. The routes get creative

    I'd like to see more bike packing reports and more routes. I'm glad theres now a place on mtbr to consolidate bikepacking reports as they were all over the place in a mix of regional forums, passion, and endurance racing forums.

    Hi everybody!

    My first post on the mtbr forums. I'm Tim I live in Tampa, FL. A friend and I started mountain biking a couple years ago as a progression from hiking. We got another friend into mtb-ing and have been inviting others so we are starting to build a group.

    Recently we have been talking about doing a bikepacking trip. Nothing is set in stone yet, but it will probably be somewhere close. A long weekend trip to get a feel for it.

    This is a great forum and I am glad I found this place.

    I'm Max, an East Bay, CA transplant in Virginia Beach, VA. I'm a daily bike commuter and ride trails quite often as well. I've done a few decent length (for me), remote, "adventure" rides on dirt roads. Never done any over nighters or multi-day tours of any sort, and have very little camping experience. I'm mostly a trail rider, but have recently gotten the itch to up my mileage and do some S240's and possibly some bike packing. Most of my trips that take place any time soon will be pretty tame compared to what many of you are doing, but they'll be a good start.

    I'm just interested in bike set ups, gear tips and pretty pictures of people going somewhere far or perhaps not so far away via bicycle.

    The great news is that you have Ocala National Forest just a hop-skip-and a jump north of you. There's easily enough service road and singletrack mix for you to get a good feel on bikepacking.

    The Ocala National Forest is where I have my eye on for our first trip. As soon as my riding buddy gets his new wheels we'll set a date, but it should be soon. Definitely before the summer heat sets in down here. Now off to see if there are any posts/reports on here about Ocala.

    wunnspeed (aka Michael Cleveland) ancient singlespeeder and misplaced American. I live in deep, dark Bavaria 15 minutes (by bike) from the base of the mountains. This year... I'm doing the TDR as my Red Ferrari for my 50th birthday.

    I'm also trying to start a small pack building business while doing some reviews for one of the big 29'er sites, teaching ESL, being a house husband and running the Euro side of Big Wheel Racing (too many irons in the fire....).

    I'm looking to learn from others, see gear and builds and get to know others around the world with similar interests.

    Looking for epic rides and breathless scenery. I would like to see bike reviews, pack and gear reviews, and routes and ride information. Nothing like a long weekend ride...

    Hi Przemek here, from Poland, Europe.
    I came from backpacking like some of you here, but always enjoyed longish bicycle trips off the beaten track - combining these two seemed like the right thing to do.
    I hope for a chance to enjoy your rides with you trough your trip reports and learning some new bits on how to enjoy outdoors more with having less clutter.
    Currently enjoying Welsh mountains and moorlands but I'm starting miss my woodlands... and sunshine
    Thanks francois

    Steve Z from northeast Ohio here. Done lots of backpacking and lots of mountainbiking - but just a little bit of bikepacking (so far). Hope to change that this summer.

    I like the DIY ideas - handmade gear is great. I'm trying to gradually build up my gear collection to make those overnighters easier.

    Also like info about routes. I'm working on a singletrack/bikepacking map for the Allegheny National Forest in PA, with help from other local riders. There is really very little info available for riders in the ANF - but the opportunities are certainly there. If anyone here is interested in that particular area I can get you copies of the working maps.

    Life happened...

    I've been spending less and less time here on mtbr. I've stripped down my geared bikepacking bike and forced it into SS duty. It's been a while since I've tried to spread the bikepacking passion. I've all but completely lost my sense of adventure, then I saw this forum! Looks like the next bike is gonna be bikepacking-friendy.
    Hey man, wanna go for a klunk?

    Awesome! I just noticed the addition of this forum now. I remember saying on these forums somewhere that a bikepacking forum would be awesome, and now there is one! Thank you very much for the addition.

    To me, touring / randonneuring is a subset of bike expedition, so the forum is aptly named. I imagine this will be (or already is since I'm 2 months late to the party) a great source for information about preparation for various types of tours, information on what routes have been travelled and how they were, and ride stoke in the form of photos and stories from everyone's experiences out and about.

    Excited!

    For the record, I ride a Salsa Vaya with front and rear Salsa racks, Ortlieb panniers front and rear, and will probably add a BOB to the mix at some point (though just bought a doggy trailer that can do the same duty to an extent). Link in my sig! I have yet to do a multi-day ride on the bike I'm embarassed to admit (I had on my previous fixed gear, lol!). Looking forward to a couple 2-3 days rides this summer, nothing big planned for 2012 but that may change!

    hi, been around mtbr for a bit. i live a bit south of santa cruz, ca, north of monterey, ca, pretty right smack dab in the middle of the monterey bay. grew up in the east bay and definitely did some hobo bikecamping as a teen in the diablo range. started short bike touring/bikecamping trips about five years ago because i love to ride from the door, lookin for mixed road/dirt routes, and just bein outside. also just really into cycling in general as transportation, utilitarian vehicles, and as an overall artform.

    i've got a few setups at the moment, bikes, racks, bags....mix and match.....i love to geek out on stuff. been goin out solo in henry coe Henry W. Coe State Park (southern section) a lot just to test out my kit, fish, and camp. also been doin and wanna get into other and more local trips, stealth camping (safety in #'s, i guess, i'm scared), and exploring. summer's off soon cause i'm a teacher, definitely gonna get out on some multi-day trips. if anyone's around and wants to ride/camp lemme know.

    Roll Call Alaska

    It has always been out and back for me in the past. These last couple years I have forced myself to really "enjoy the ride" ie stay overnight. I am just figuring out how to keep it light.

    I am here to learn how to leave the Kitchen sink at home.

    Bikepacking is true mountain biking!

    Hi everyone,

    I am new to bike packing but not backpacking in general. I have also been a mountain biker most of my life. I am excited to try some bike packing trips this summer. I ride a 2012 Salsa Fargo 2. I would like to include a picture of my setup but I do not have enough posts yet. I will edit this post with a picture of my bike soon. I made a few changes from the stock setup. I replaced the FSA crankset with a Shimano XT, and replaced the Thudbuster with a Easton seatpost and Brooks B17 narrow. I also have been running Schwalbe Marathon Supremes for commuting but have since reinstalled the stock Race Kings for bike packing. I went on a 80 mile gravel road ride last Saturday and it was great. Looking forward to exploring the forum.

    El Train here.
    I live in Livingston, Montana, just north of Yellowstone. Prime country for this type of travel, tons of dirt roads and forest service land. And no people.

    Never bikepacked. But it is the next step for me. Mtn biker for 20+ years, just got into endurance racing two years ago. I always talked smack about bike touring, because I figured I wouldn't be able to rally and do jumps or whatever....but now I am older and don't care about any of that. I have done a lot of dual sport moto exploring around MT, so I have tons of routes already scoped out. And I backpacked a bunch when I was younger and have all that gear, though I haven't been backpacking in a long time since I like biking so much!
    A few years ago I did a 3 day 500 mile ultralight dual sport trip on an XR600 and it was one of the funner things I have ever done. I am over it with dirt bikes though and would love to the same thing with a mtn bike. I could easily carry the same stuff on a bike no problem.

    I just want to be able to ride really far, sleep in the bushes, and ride some more in the morning. Repeat.

    Trips I want to do include:
    Circumnavigating the Crazy Mtns. Should be a good starter shakedown cruise, two days.

    Parts and eventually all of the CDT in Montana. Done a good portion of this on the moto over time. Pretty easy since it's local to me.

    Gravelly Range Rd, in SW MT. One of the more impressive roads I have ever been on. A favorite on the moto.

    Hi
    gravedoja here from the uk, i have been cycling since 1991, i started out bike packing back in the day on my emelle santana, sleeping out under the stars in a cheapo sleeping bag, i carried it all round in a plastic bag bungied to a rear rack, happy days. Anyway me and my girlfriend are getting back into it now, we did a few one nighters last year and this year we plan to expand on that. I have just ordered some bags from bikepack eu, so looking forward to getting those. will post up some pics ( old and new ) at some point.

    looking forward to reading trip and kit reports and also like 'build your own kit' threads.

    Toodles.

    Hello there, Nick from Shropshire in the UK, just working out a route for this year's Welsh Ride Thing, this is my third year of bikepacking and have finally graduated to some proper kit and a bike designed for the task (Fargo). Have recently started making my own gear, including a frame bag which you can see on my blog I'll be back soon!. Would love to see more of the world and sleep rough in it!

    Well...it's a picture...



    I'm dutch. Besides mountainbiking I did a lot of cycletouring, mostly in Europe but I've been tot the US twice. My wife and I did a large portion of the GDMR in 2006 as a second honeymoon. I haven't done any touring since then, we got busy, two kids so far. I do want to give it a go again though, both solo and as a family when the kids are a little older. I'm currently training by pulling them in a trailer

    My wife is planning a quick solo tour this summer, maybe I'll go for a couple of days as well, we'll see.

    Thanks for the forum...

    ...to all on this great forum, I would like to live through your eyes as I will never get to see in person what you all do.

    I can offer up my experiences and goals accomplished.

    What do I want here? To wish everyone health, success, and positive energy, on all your trips out there in nature.

    While or yes I've dreamt of bike-packing/camping,I'm new to it this year. My trips will mostly be short,and rail-trailish,with my son,both kids,and/or hopefully a longer trip with the Wife come October as we celebrate our 20th.

    Yeah,most of ours will be rail trail type trips (though my Xtracycle is technically still a mtn bike,LOL!),bu I'd like to do some singletrack or gravel grinding trips too. Big asperations,small windows of op's I'm enjoying this forum though,very happy to have it,learned lots already,hope I can help someone else along the way

    Iíve been lurking in these bikepacking forums for a few months now getting very excited about the possibilities. Iíve done a lot of backpacking and canoe tripping, but the whole bikepacking thing is a new one to me.

    My birthday is tomorrow (44) and my saintly wife suggested I could try a bikepacking overnighter (she wants to do this, too, but with two kids, I must shoulder the burden of scouting some rides Ė life is hardÖ) So, as I have been blessed with a new bike (Klein Attitude) for my birthday, I have been modifying the older ride (a 94ish Gary Fisher Hoo koo e koo with rigid replacement fork) for bikepacking. I am so excited! My plan is to go out tomorrow and return Saturday.

    Iíll be going up into the Zuni mountains in western New Mexico. We own some land near there and that will be home base for heading out into the forest land. I did a scouting mission for the day two weekends ago and the terrain is lovely, if a bit challenging for a loaded bike. Lots of ups and downs between about 7000 and almost 9000 feet (its all just to the west of the Continental Divide here). Itíll be a good workout. The good news its almost all downhill back to our land.

    Anyway, got my list and Iím checking it twice. Its possible Iíll get some rain, too. But no cooking. There are fire restrictions (with good reason) and I donít need the extra weight. Aside from coffee, it should be fine.

    Will post a report when I return!

    UPDATE: Ok, back from the trip. Report is here. Thanks for the inspiration everyone!

    byknuts (ian) here.
    I recently did what I called a 7 hour/140km sprint on a single speed gardin with 56x16 gearing. It was mostly relatively flat terrain.

    I've tentatively volunteered to do a 1350-1400 km 10 day ride in early September.
    We'll have a support truck (large group, about 10 or 12 people I think)
    but for all intents and purposes it'll be tents by the side of the road/trail.

    Travelling from Thunder Bay to Toronto (Ontario), route seems to be mostly by roads, rural routes, etc.
    Basically we're moving from black bear and moose country, down to deer and coyote country.

    Suggestions, advice, anything?

    Rig planned is a Salsa Casseroll, 1x9 (11-32 on a 48), ti bars (maybe seatpost too), Magura brakes, Tk7.1's on Real hubs, schwalbe 40mm marathon xr's.
    I know the 40's are kind of overkill, but I'm more comfortable knowing I CAN air down if need be, instead of being stuck with high-psi all the time.
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!

    So, don't know if I introduced myself before. I'm an expat living in Southern Bavaria, Germany. I come from Kansas City and now ride around the Alps whenever possible.

    This year, my 50th, I did the Tour Divide Race on my rigid singlespeed 29'er. The bags on my bike are half Carousal and half my brand SpoK. I'm in the process of getting my bag making business up and running and I also teach Business English on the ESL level.

    Hey all....I can't for the life of me figure why I have yet to post here...but I'm usually over on the AZ forum blasting pics of my two-wheeled catharsis. I love to bikepack...my journey is found at my blog below.

    Cheers,

    Hi All,
    I am Bryan living in Denver, CO. Last year I bought a Salsa Fargo with the full intention of getting into bikepacking. So far this year, I've bikepacked twice-- once on the Great Divide and the other on the Colorado Trail.
    I plan on doing part of the Great Divide route next summer with some friends. Once I have enough posts, I'll post photos.
    Cheers- Bryan

    Hi everyone.

    I'm a Brit living in Calgary Canada and I road bike, mountain bike and fat bike. Looking at learning from everyone here and I'm planning to ride the western BC stretch of the Trans Canada Trail next year.

    Thanks for all the great advice so far.

    Richie

    New to bikepacking

    I'm new to mtbr.com and this forum. I'd like to see some information on multi-day rides in the Colorado area. Also, suggestions on packs/panniers/bags for the bike.
