Looking back at another Saturday and Sunday on two wheels, three folks from our global bikepacking community share scenes from their rides in today’s Weekend Snapshot. We join them in British Columbia, Colorado, and Peru this time. Peek at all three and share a shot from one of your recent adventures using the quick submission form here…

Today’s Weekend Snapshot features a particularly dreamy mix of quiet dirt roads that make us want to drop everything and head out for a loaded tour. Join readers on rides along a quiet forest in British Columbia, through the snowy mountains of Colorado, and over a high-elevation pass in Peru below. Plus, share a photo from one of your recent rides using the form at the bottom of this post. We rely on folks from our community to keep this Monday morning series fresh!

Texada Island, British Columbia

Weekend Snapshot

By Emily Heron

With a sunny break in the long-term weather forecast, Miles and I decided to head over to Texada Island for a quick overnighter last Friday. We left from our front door, took a short ferry ride, and rode a mix of pavement and gravel to a beautiful oceanfront campsite. We ended up being the only ones at the campground, which was a special treat. This was also a scouting trip for the first annual Slow Coast qathet bikepacking weekend I’m organizing this fall.
