Hi all, I have been blogging my bike tours and written a few articles on a website called Crazyguyonabike. While hanging around this winter driving Cyndy nuts waiting for my hand to get better so I could ride, I revised an article I wrote on “Traditional Lightweight Touring, vs Bikepacking”. The article was selected to be the featured article on the Crazyguy website.
If you are interested in some of the details on how you can gear up for a lightweight bike tour, you may want to check it out, it can be found on the Crazyguyonabike featured article homepage: https://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/featured/?o=1mr&doctype=article . BTW, I hope to try out some of these bikepacking strategies on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route this summer if all goes well. It’s the 20th anniversary of the GDMBR so there should be a fair number of folks on the route and a good time to ride it: https://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/great-divide-mountain-bike-route/ .
