Additional Note: To manage the risk of COVID-19, we will limit the group to 10 people, sit 2 meters apart outdoors, and will not be serving or sharing food and beverages at this clinic.

What you’ll get: Our experienced bike adventuring presenters will leave informed about how to ease into bikepacking, how to optimize your riding position and saddle selection, plan and execute a weekend trip, and some route/trip recommendations near Vancouver. You will also learn about the bare minimum gear you need.

Have you been curious about bikepacking, but unsure where to start? Does buying all the speciality bags deter you from trying bikepacking? Do life commitments make long bikepacking trips seem unattainable? This clinic is an interactive presentation of everything you need to know about a weekend bikepacking trip. We will talk about what bike and saddle to select, how to plan for a short trip, what food to pack, what gear you need, and why sometimes a short trip is all it takes to have a great adventure.
