Introduction to bikepacking

“There is more to us than we know. If we can be made to see it, perhaps for the rest of our lives we will be unwilling to settle for less.”  –Kurt Hahn (Founder, Outward Bound)

Over night bikepacking trip all set this month up on the Sunrise Trail in Ellsworth.  I’m going with friend Andy Hazen, who is using the  trip as preparation for his run of the Tour Divide, which starts southbound June 8 in Banff.  He’ll have 27 days to reach Mexico.  I predict a hero. It is considered the most demanding two wheeled race in the world, include the Tour de France.  Megatex’s own General Tso will also be along to push the pace.

Something else to learn about, but I see it backpacking on two wheels.  This link should help.
