This seminar will focus on the route planning and logistics aspect of bikepacking and will be geared toward aspiring and experienced bikepackers alike. We will cover how to choose a route and best sources for information; how to tweak existing routes to better suit your goals, abilities, or trip timeline; and how to map and design your own route taking into account terrain, resupply, lodging options and other considerations. The goal of this session is to empower anyone interested in multi-day trips to design a route that best serves them, resulting in fun and rewarding experiences on the bike.
