Video: Getting Gear for a Bikepacking Trip on the Cheap

A few weeks back I attended the Bikepacking Summit in Gunnison, Colorado. There, I learned all about the gear and strategies you need to get started in the sport, which allows you to travel just about anywhere on your bike. As with any outdoor adventure, bikepacking requires a fair amount of gear to get started and as with backpacking, the lighter the better. In this video, we get some advice on how to outfit our bikes with everything we need to hit the road (or trail!) and survive comfortably for extended periods of time. The clip also offers some tips on how to save some cash when getting started too, although if you’re already a backpacker, chances are you’ll probably own some of the gear you’ll need.
