We’re wrapping up another jam-packed issue of The Bikepacking Journal, which we’ll be printing and shipping to Bikepacking Collective members worldwide around the end of the year. If you’re a reader of the site and you still haven’t signed up to support us, there’s still time to do so! Join before 11:59 p.m. EDT next Tuesday, October 17th, and you’ll be set to receive the upcoming 11th Journal (and all future issues) delivered to your mailbox anywhere in the world.

  • The Bikepacking Journal 11

Our 11th issue spans 160 colorful pages. Inside, we follow another immensely talented group of contributors as they pedal across Europe, huff and puff up the Himalayas, snake their way through South America, race across Kyrgyzstan, push and pull their rigs along rugged tracks in the Republic of Georgia, and so much more. As always, we’ve carefully curated a mix of thought-provoking essays and immersive stories. This is yet another issue you won’t want to miss.

Free Iceland Divide Map with Every Copy!

As an added bonus for folks who sign up to support the site in advance of the October 17th deadline, we commissioned a reader-favorite illustrator to create an original fold-out map of the Iceland Divide, and we’ll be including one in each copy of The Bikepacking Journal 11. Keep an eye out, as we’ll share a teaser of our latest members-only map in the coming days.

Revel Wayward Dream Build Giveaway

We teamed up with Revel Bikes, Ergon, Hunter Cycles, Logos Components, Rockgeist, and SRAM to build one hell of a dreamy Revel Wayward bikepacking rig with a retail value of more than $7,500. One lucky Bikepacking Collective member will take it home, and it’s not too late to get signed up for a chance to win! Plus, even if you’re not the winner, all of our supporters have access to an exclusive 40% discount of Revel Wayward frames.

Revel Wayward Dream Bike

Only in Print

We’re passionate about creating something tangible that you can hold in your hands and savor with your morning coffee, and the complete collection of stories featured in The Bikepacking Journal is only available in print. No expenses are spared in its production, and we’re committed to making it feel like something special that’s worth the wait when it arrives two times each year.
