We’re back with another Weekend Snapshot, this time highlighting bikepacking trips from our readers in Armenia, South Carolina, and Italy. Catch a glimpse of how three folks from across the community used their recent weekends and find a link to share photos from your rides here…

We travel to three distinct locations for today’s Weekend Snapshot, in which three members of our global bikepacking community show off their recent rides in Armenia’s Geghama Mountains, Italy’s Road of Heroes, and South Carolina’s Palmetto Trail. Check them all out below, then keep scrolling to use the form to share scenes from your recent rides!

Geghama Mountains, Armenia

Weekend Snapshot

By Erik Heinen

Pushing up to the high point in the Geghama Mountains in Armenia. Three middle-aged dads snuck away from their families and careers to ride a fantastic section of BIKEPACKING.com’s Caucasus Crossing Armenia Route. We didn’t go fast or far, but had a great adventure and proved that with careful negotiation, adventures are still possible at our stage in life!

South Carolina, USA

Weekend Snapshot

By Tanner Arrington

At the first sign of cool weather this year, I took my kids on their first bikepacking trip: six miles to camp on a rail-to-trail section of the Palmetto Trail. Our first lesson was packing light, since this was our first time not car camping together. We still managed to bring quite the comfortable camp setup, which was hauled in the trailer. My six-year-old son was thrilled to help by carrying some gear on his handlebars.

Pasubio, Italy

Weekend Snapshot

The “Road of Heroes” is a track that starts from the Pian delle Fugazze Pass, exactly on the border between the Trentino and Veneto regions of Italy. It’s a path dug into the rock by soldiers during the First World War. It can be reached along with a number of paths that dot the area as a one-day bikepacking loop or broken into smaller segments. Must do at least once in a lifetime!
