Does your tarp fall over at the slightest hint of a breeze? Do you wonder how other people manage to ride loaded bikes that don’t look like every bag attached is about to explode? Have you ever wondered what it’s like to sleep in a hammock? Would you like to spend a night out with some like minded souls, have a craic and maybe pick a few bikepacking related tips up?

If you’ve answered yes to any of the above, then you might want to come along to the Bear Bones Summer Camp on the weekend of July 20th/21st. It’s an informal weekend where hopefully people can share their experience and pass on / receive tips and advice on all things bikepacky. Full details aren’t finalised just yet but I can say that it’ll be held in sunniest mid Wales, will involve a ride/night out, is completely free and is open to everyone no matter how experienced/inexperienced they may be. For anyone who likes the thought of bikepacking but hasn’t yet dipped a toe and caught the bug, there’ll be a (limited) amount of kit available for you to borrow … so don’t let ‘not having the gear’ put you off coming.

More details as soon as they’re sorted out.

    Sounds great, I've had a couple of nights out but now my wife's keen to get try too, but for some reason isn't fully confident of my skills 🙂
    Pretty much got most of the gear from touring, so I'll watch out for updates.

  2. You'll be very welcome (your good lady too if she likes). There'll be updates here and over on the fotum.

Book Club – Surf an’ turf.

I’m something of a scant planner and it’s perhaps fair to say that I’m usually guided by whim, fancy and misfortune rather than global positioning systems. Any plans beyond ‘I’m going that way’ are seldom adhered to as I find myself easily distracted by all and every track and path that beckons me with a […]
