Following another weekend full of small and large rides for our readers around the world, we’re back with our 87th edition of Weekend Snapshot. This time around, we share scenes from bikepacking trips in the Colorado Rockies, Scottish Highlands, and the hills of Austria. Find all three and share a photo from one of your recent getaways here…

Weekend Snapshot is our ongoing Monday morning celebration of all forms of riding, and folks from across our global bikepacking community have been sending in photos from their rides for more than a year and a half now. To help kick off another week, we’re offering a glimpse at three such trips today. Find reader-submitted scenes from Scotland, Austria, and Colorado below, followed by a quick form you can use to share a photo of your own and a handful of related posts for further reading.


Weekend Snapshot

By Taf McMurry

Backyard adventure. Door to door in less than 24 hours, 4,000 feet of climbing, 45 miles of pedaling, camping at 11,750 feet up, mining and railroad history, and a ride home in a downpour. It all added up to another amazing trip on my bike!


Weekend Snapshot

While completing the Highland Trail 550, we stopped at Croik Church, which lies some 10 miles up Strathcarron in the Scottish Highlands. As part of the Highland Clearances in 1845, 18 familie—some 90 people—were cleared from the homes where they had lived for generations. Many took shelter in impoverished booths erected in the Croick churchyard. Their recorded messages can still be seen to this day, scratched on the outside of the east window of the church.


Weekend Snapshot

A scene from the Grevet from Graz to Vienna, Austria. The strenuous three-day ride was around 260 kilometers with 4,500 meters of climbing, and the terrain was a mix of about 60% pavement and 40% forest roads.
