What is bikepacking?

Bikepacking is a form of long-distance cycling where cyclists travel with all their gear on their bikes, combining elements of both cycling and backpacking. With its origins in mountain biking and bicycle touring, bikepacking has become a popular way to explore off-road terrain and backcountry trails. Electric bikes, such as fat tire, hunting, or mountain e-bikes, are especially useful for bikepacking trips.
