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:

Cycle touring or bikepacking has been around since the early 70s. Not only is it a great way to get around, but it’s an affordable way to experience amazing landscapes and exercise along the way.

Over the past centuries, bicycles have been used as a way to transport goods, and even travel around the world. Today, there are modern high-tech bikes and communication devices that make cycle touring a whole lot easier! When starting my journey on two wheels across South America, my goal was to reach Venezuela from Patagonia. Not only was this a life-changing experience but its a great opportunity to learn to be more self-sufficient.

Bikepacking expeditions can range from the occasional weekend trips to traveling through different continents.
