Video: A School Night Bikepacking Adventure

Bikepacking is often romanticized by beautiful journeys where riders traverse remote mountain passes in distant lands. The kinds of trips where views are endless and morning coffees look better than the stuff you drink at home. Other bikepacking endeavors showcase the suffering that ensues when riders overload their bikes and then push through days of relentless rain. We love those trips, but let's not overlook the simplicity of a quick overnight trip. Regardless of whether you ride a bone-rattling hardtail, a too-efficient gravel bike or a big ole enduro sender...there's always a campsite waiting for you and your friends. Strap a few pieces of gear to your bike or smash it all in the JanSport backpack that's been crumpled up in your closet since high school. It's time for a mid-week adventure.

 So rad. I'm telling ya Pinkbikers, you NEED an aggressive hardtail. I bikepack, commute, run errands, do dirt jumps, ride trail, and keep with up gravel rides on mine. All it takes is a tire change. Get one.

S24O's (sub 24hour overnighters) are often the highlight of my week and make me feel ok being home-and-work-bound the rest of the week.

 Actually I take that back. The bike you have is fine! Use what you've got. But if you need an excuse for another bike...

 @rickybobby18: no need for another bike, not to mention I’d rather ride a FS bike, waay more fun.

So where were they riding?
