    This is good. Enjoy backpacking & mountain biking so why not combine? Could sure cover a lot more ground.

    bikepacking beats strapped in a smelly/loud 4x4 and rolling through the terrain at 5mph

    I will continue to compile these bikepacking features in this one thread. Stay tuned for more features in the coming weeks, and please let me know what other topics you would like to see covered. If there is anything you would like to discuss in greater detail, I can do that as well. I know many of you are keen to learn more about routes. That's a big project and should be ready by late September.

    Heading out for a couple of days of bike touring tomorrow. Weather forecast calls for rain and not so warm temperatures... I'm outfitted with waterproof Ortlieb gear, gore tex and other goodies that will make it enjoyable. But I'm still struggling with getting motivated in miserable weather...
    What do you guys do to keep you going? My problem is that I like taking breaks taking in nice views or go for coffee, but being wet and cooling off very quickly makes that a pain in the butt.... Ideas?

    Looking forward to it Christophe! Your articles have rekindled interest in my Nine Trail build (which admittedly stalled). I pulled it out for the first time in over a month last week and started working on it again, beginning with some serious simplifying and lightening (a 1x setup is in it's future).
