Bikepacking Guides

Interesting in racing/riding one of the bikepacking triple crown race, or touring one of the classic routes? Our bikepacking guides will get you from idea, to the start of either the Arizona Trail, Tour Divide, Colorado Trail, or Kokopelli Trail.

After that it’s up to you to get to the finish. With our guides we think you’ll have the best shot at having a successful trip, but a lot of whether you finish or not has to do with how well you plan. Don’t get us wrong, physical fitness is also import, but so is mental prep. Proper planning is part of being mentally tough. As the saying goes, “Knowledge is power!”. We would like to think we’ve got you covered there.

Our bikepacking guides include everything: trail history, facts, data, step by step planning, transportation, best and hardest sections, lessons learned, things to do before you go, maps, town lists, water sources, gear lists, downloads, and lots more.

What are you waiting for?  Get planning!

The Colorado Trail is a multi use trail, like that of the AZT. The big difference is the CT has an average elevation of over 10,000′, with miles of above tree line riding, thick forests, and can be much wetter. Epic HAB’s and hair rising descents await you on this epic single track gem.
