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.

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

However, they’re questions that I believe we should all ask of ourselves and if we’re honest and truthful, then perhaps the answers and solutions will readily present themselves. Once upon […]

SOTO Wind Master stove.

Rightly or wrongly, I kind of assume that other people assume that I only ever use meths stoves. The real truth is, I’ll happily burn any kind of fuel in my continual quest for another brew. I feel there’s a time and a place for every type of stove and conditions combined with your own […]

The Titan Ground Anchor.

To most upright members of society, a tent peg will receive less thought than what they’re having for their dinner. Conversely, to the ardent bikepacker, the seemingly humble tent peg is a source of untold fascination. Length, diameter, material and obviously weight all require careful scrutiny if the Holy Grail of tent pegs is ever […]
