Submit your local BikepackingOvernighters -

Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

A short bikepacking overnighter can be just as rewarding and restorative as “The Big Trip”... in a more accessible and perfectly formed package. The Local Overnighters Project is a unified effort to map and gather overnighters all over the world—by locals, in their own backyards. Explore the map below and scroll down to learn more about the project and how you can submit your local overnight bike route.

Form a Local Overnighter Chapter and host monthly or bi-monthly overnighter meetup rides. We’re currently working on the infrastructure to display chapters on the site; stay tuned.

We are looking for the best overnighters. Not just any ride, but favorite rides you’d recommend to a friend. Ideally these rides are from a town or central place in a community. We’re also interested in tying in local businessess, bike shops, breweries, or eateries. Here are basic requirements:

Route can either be a loop, or use an easy mode of transportation back to the start.

Mileage can vary, but typically overnighter routes are in between 30 and 100 miles (48-160km). More importantly, they should be doable in less than two days.

All roads, trails, campsites, and land access should be legal for bikes.

We need 20-40 high quality photographs taken of the route (roads, trails, riding shots, camp shots, etc)

MoBikeFed comment: There are NO Missouri (or Midwest!) routes on yet. We would love to see some of those best local bikepackibg routes submitted.

We'd love to see a Local Overnighter Chapter (or more than one) organized in Missouri, as well.
