Did you know it was ok to just pack a whole-lot-a stuff into bags and go camping on your bike? Weird huh?
You can successfully pull a poop ton of stuff and still have a great ride. You don’t need experience packing, picking the just right equipment. You don’t need to worry about forgetting something – pack it all! Pack two!
I highly recommend anyone interested in bike packing go fully loaded at least once.
Don't forget the wine.
Do forget about mph, weight, distance, cadence, time, looking pro. I can tell you from experience going at a distracted pace, pulling a whole campground worth of stuff for an undetermined distance and looking like a vagrant is a damn good time.
It also makes for a comfortable night’s sleep.
