We’ll soon be publishing the latest issue of The Bikepacking Journal, our biannually printed publication. As a heads up, the deadline to join our Bikepacking Collective and have your membership start with Issue 05 is just around the corner at 11:59 PM EDT on Saturday, October 17th.

Inside this issue, you’ll find 160 pages of the most engaging writing and inspiring photography from bikepacking trips all around the world. This time around, our contributors bring us to Tanzania, Colombia, Sweden, Colorado, Mexico and many other locations. We’re also including a custom made sticker sheet, featuring seven different stickers, including our new Coyote and Hare drivetrain animals.

We’re optimistic about printing and shipping Issue 05 on schedule in mid-November. However, there may be longer shipping times due to COVID-19. We’ll of course keep you updated as information arises.
