Since 2014, we’ve been building, establishing, sharing, and maintaining high qulity bikepacking routes around the world. We now have over 130,000 km (82,000 miles) worth of routes in nearly 50 countries. Find the full route network below (other than overnighters), including race routes, contributed routes, and our routes. If you wish to view these as a list, you can sort by location or route length. Have a route to contribute? Share your submission.
We are looking for the best quality bikepacking routes to inspire and enable people to get out and explore the world in a sustainable way, on two wheels. If you have a route you'd highly recommend, read the requirements below and fill out this form. If selected, we’ll need a detailed guide of the route, including highlights, details, logistical info, high quality photos, and a GPX track.
The Bikepacking Collective Route Network is our established collection of original and exceptional bikepacking routes designed by our team of experienced Route Architects or skilled contributors from the community. New Bikepacking Collective Routes are partially funded and supported by the Bikepacking Collective, our member community. As we update and refine some of our popular published routes, we'll induct them into the network, along with other distinguished rides. We’ll also be strengthening these routes through our forthcoming Route Stewards program. Become a Bikepacking Collective member to help support this effort.
A short bikepacking overnighter can be just as rewarding and restorative as a big trip. The Local Overnighters Project is a unified effort to map and gather overnighters all over the world—by locals who know their own backyards best. Explore the map below or click here for more information about the project, or to submit your own Local Overnighter.
The Bikepacking Collective Routes Fund is a member- and sponsor-funded initiative to develop high-quality, signature bikepacking routes. We have several in the works already, with many more to come. Become a member to support this and learn more about the initiative here.
Our core group of Route Architects is made up of passionate, skilled individuals who are largely responsible for the Bikepacking Collective Routes network or have larger routes in the works. Each is experienced in bikepacking route design, active in community advocacy, and proficient in route documentation.
We started the Route Scouts program back in 2017 to foster community involvement and harness on-the-ground and local expertise for route documentation and planning. In addition, we’re currently implementing a deeper Route Stewards program for several of our more significant routes.
As public lands shrink, land rights change, and roads are paved, bikepacking routes must adapt and our community must be vigilant. Learn more about each initiative and get involved by signing up below. You’ll receive route updates and information about our new route initiatives and opportunities as they arise. We have a number of large-scale projects in the works, in addition to modifications and action needed on existing routes, so be sure to get on the mailing list to stay up to date.
Route Scouts may be notified during the scouting phase of new routes, or if issues arise as a result of land or trail closures on established routes. Scouting missions often include one or more of the following tasks:
Some routes require more attention and input than others. We are depending on individuals from the bikepacking community within these corridors for help. Although each route is different, these are the general roles that may be expected of Route Stewards:
