Bikepacking for First Timers

  • The Adventure Hub S33 0AL United Kingdom (map)

Open to everyone, this introductory weekend includes a guided ride with an overnight bivvy, kit hire, food, and instructions in all things bikepacking, especially for those new to this area of riding or wanting to try it out without the commitment of buying expensive kit.

The riding will not be technically challenging, but it will be mainly off-road, on rough tracks and bridleways. We'll cover a reasonable amount of distance so should have a good level of fitness, enough to spend 4 + hours riding each day, which might not sound a lot, but bear in mind your bike will be a lot heavier than you are used to.

You obviously also need to be up for a bit of an adventure! We'll be staying out in the wild, and there won't be the usual home comforts, anything you want to bring with you, you have to carry on your bike! The weather might not be as idylic as that vision you have in your head (hopefully it will!). Having said that, we genuinely think you will feel like you have been on a proper adventure, had a great time with a bunch of other adventurous souls, and have been bitten by the bikepacking bug after joining us on this trip!
