If you’ve been thinking about trying bikepacking but don’t know where to start – this adventure is for you. We’ll safely guide you over the logistical and mental hurdles of planning your first overnight into Alberta’s beautiful backcountry.

You’ll carry on your bike everything you need to overnight in the woods including your shelter, food, water, and clothing. The ideal bike for this adventure would be a gravel bike or hardtail mountain bike with capability to attach a rear rack/panniers or bikepacking bags and minimum tire width of 40mm.

In camp, we’ll lead discussions on the following topics:

Essentials of your first aid kit

Tips on packing your bike

Fire Making

Three dates to choose from: July 6-7 2021, August 10-11 2021, and September 14-15 2021.
