About the event
Congrats to our Bikepacking Graduates! Time for your trip!
This trip is only for folks who have attended the entire bikepacking series. We will not allow attendees who have not attended the entire series. We'll pick dates based on attendee availability at the second class!
This course is a part of our backpacking and bikepacking series! We at Gearhouse want to get as many different kinds of people outside, so we’re running a series to teach you absolutely everything you’d need to know to get out into the backcountry. We'll talk how to pack a bike, gear, trail selection, weight (you don’t need to be ultralight to have a lighter pack!), food, safety: we will cover it all. At the end of this series, you’ll be confident in your skills to get you and your friends out on the trail, and we'll plan a trip to put your knowledge to the test.
