We are camping at the base camp in Geilo the first night, the second night we sleep out in the wild.

There is a lot of information to be shared and many topics to cover, so we spend most of the time off our bikes, explaining, demonstrating, practicing. The overnight trip is not a long ride, just far enough to get us into the wilderness. The ride should fit all riding abilities and fitness levels.

Topics we cover:
The bike and the bags: benefits and disadvantages of different bike types. Challenges with various frame designs and sizes (full suspension, hardtail). Bikepacking bags and packing solutions.
The gear: Clothing, shelter (tent, tarp, bivouac, sleeping bag, matress), cooking, nutrition, repair kit, other essentials. What to take and how to pack it on your bike.
Camping: where to sleep, how to set up camp, different types of shelter (tents, tarps, bivouacs, when and how to use them)
Fuel: nutrition and hydration for long rides, camp kitchen (pots, stoves), transporting food.
Basic bike maintenance, what to carry in terms of spares and tools.
Basic first aid kit for solo trips.

2500NOK per person
