BC Bikepacking

bikepacking adventures and insights

This is Bikepacking BC. Think of it as a virtual campfire, bar stool or tailgate for those of you interested in pedaling, pushing, dragging and, let’s be honest, sometimes throwing your bike through the rugged wilds of British Columbia.

 

I’m not sure who else is out there, but I trust you will find this and we will build a gathering place to share routes, commiserate over bushwhacks, swap ideas about gear and hopefully get excited about going new places on our bikes.

 

From custom fat bikes and frame bags to ultra light camping gear and DIY gear like stoves and seat bags we can share our favourite routes from the Coast to the Kootenays, the Rockies and Beyond. This project will be an opportunity to share the adventure of bikepacking in Western Canada (and occasionally other places).
