  • MBWales - April Challenge: Bikepacking
    the two things differ greatly There tends to be a real focus within the bikepacking community on weight saving and minimal kit Rather than filling a set of panniers with everything they think they might need the bikepacker will trim down their kit to the minimum possible This carry less enjoy more philosophy will allow you to ride the same technical trails you d ride unloaded without your bike becoming a burden When you ve finished your days riding just unpack your gear get a brew on and spend the night at the side of the trail next morning pack up and carry on riding Don t think you have to spend a small fortune on exotic gear before you can enjoy a bikepacking trip A few simple basics will get out in the hills and under the stars but be warned if the bikepacking bug bites you may find yourself amassing quite a collection of expensive goose down and titanium goodies A sleeping bag bivvy bag and sleeping mat would be enough to get you started those three could be easily bought for under 70 with a little carefull shopping The popularity of bikepacking is increasing almost weekly Within the UK it s now reached the point where it has it s own events forums and websites If your imagination has been fueled then a good place to find out more would be bearbonesbikepacking co uk You ll find information on the three annual Bear Bones Add Ventures including the near infamous Welsh Ride Thing There s also the blog which features plenty of kit reviews and inspiration for making your own gear and a busy forum too Obviously carrying your home with you opens up a lot of options for taking longer or more wild and remote rides It also enables you to have mini adventures Imagine setting off on a Friday after work and riding for a couple of hours Most people will have a secluded spot where they could spend the night within a few miles of home you could be back the following day before the rest of the world is awake If it all sounds like something you d like to try but you still find the prospect a little daunting there s always the option of an arranged trip Forest Freeride run a number of Welsh bikepacking trips You ll get the opportunity to sample it first hand and learn the ropes wthout risking it turning into a cold wet disaster Many people enjoy bikepacking along existing long distance routes The South Downs Way in England the West Highland Way in Scotland and the often overlooked Trans Cambrian Way in Wales The TCW runs from Knighton on the English Welsh border to Dyfi Junction on the Welsh west coast a distance of around 100 miles The route takes in some fantastic and remote mid Wales countryside at times you really will be out in the wilds Most people choose to ride the route
