Bikepacking is often romanticized by beautiful journeys where riders traverse remote mountain passes in distant lands. The kinds of trips where views are endless and morning coffees looks better than the stuff you drink at home. Other bikepacking endeavors showcase the suffering that ensues when riders overload their bikes and then push their bikes through days of relentless rain. We love those trips, but let's not overlook the simplicity of a quick overnight trip with friends. Whether you consider yourself a gravel grinder, hardtail smasher or enduro sender...there's a campsite currently waiting for you and your buddies. Strap a few things to your handlebars or smash it all in the JanSport backpack that's been crumpled up in your closet since high school. Join us for a mid-week adventure!
