Join us for a four day bikepacking loop in Big Bend Ranch State Park, based on one of the International Mountain Bike Association’s epic routes that's aptly titled 'The Other Side of Nowhere'. No not BACKpacking, BIKEpacking. This will be an expedition adventure like no other, combining mountain biking and lightweight backpacking. We will be carrying everything we need with specialized bike bags. This will be a small expedition with only a limited number of participants allowed as we work through this new adventure together. We will work on biking skills, camping skills, lightweight camping techniques, as well as bike maintenance. Familiarity and comfort with riding a mountain bike is highly recommended. We will have a pre-trip meeting, a group pre-ride, and a fitness assessment prior to Spring Break.
