Heads up! The deadline to join our Bikepacking Collective and have your membership start with Issue 04 of The Bikepacking Journal is tomorrow, April 17th, at 11:59 PM EDT. If you join after the cutoff, you won’t receive your first journal until we print Issue 05 in October.
Inside Issue 04, you’ll find 160 pages bursting with inspiring photography and engaging stories from bikepacking trips all around the world. RJ Sauer takes us to Morocco for the Atlas Mountain Race, we accompany Taneli Roininen as he scouts out a new route through an otherwordly corner of Argentina, Jess Daddio reflects on rediscovering her home state of Virginia by bicycle, and so much more.
Baja Divide Map by Alex Hotchin
Our own Cass Gilbert returns for another issue to share a story from his recent trip along Mexico’s ~1,700-mile Baja Divide Route. To accompany his piece, we commissioned illustrator Alex Hotchin to create another unique hand-drawn map for us. And we’ll be including a free copy of her latest large-scale map—this one’s roughly 35cm x 50cm (13.75″ x 20″)—with every issue of The Bikepacking Journal 04.
Becoming a Bikepacking Collective member is the best way to support our work here at BIKEPACKING.com, where we’re committed to sharing in-depth articles, inspiring stories, original routes, and news on a daily basis. Joining by 11:59 PM EDT on Friday means you’ll never miss another issue of The Bikepacking Journal again, and will be entered to win one of 44 great prizes in Friday’s drawing, including a Salsa Journeyman 650B, Wahoo ELEMNT ROAM GPS units, bags from Revelate Designs, Rockgeist, and Ortlieb, tires from Teravail, and lots more.
