Description

Part backpacking and part bike-touring, bikepacking is a fun choice for cycling buddies, couples and families who ride together. It lets you cover more miles than hiking, plus you can access dirt roads and trails that are inaccessible to other vehicles. Rides range from local overnighters all the way up to epic cross-country trail rides.

Come learn how to get started with bikepacking with REI Atlanta! We'll cover:

  • What bike to ride: You need one capable of handling the terrain you choose
  • How to pack your gear: Options include daypacks, panniers, frame bags and more
  • What gear to bring: You'll need basic bike items, plus backpacking gear
  • Trip-planning tips: Learn where you can bikepack
  • Riding tips: Carrying all that gear can take some getting used to
  • Bikepacking resources: There are a number of great online resources for even more information
