British author Arthur Conan Doyle once said; 'when the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking'. In essence, Doyle believes that one rides a bike as a form of escapism. This, in part might explain why bikepacking is fast becoming one of the most popular cycling disciplines.
One of the greatest advantages to traveling by bicycle is that you can go almost anywhere you like. Beaches, mountains and forests all suddenly become much more accessible when the constraints of roads and rails are removed. With very little effort almost anyone can venture out on two wheels to find their own adventure. A ride can be planned with as little as an OS map and a bike.
For those who like to really get out into the heart of nature, bikepacking is the obvious go to. Riding out into the wild with only your bike and the equipment you carry with you is certainly one of the purest forms of cycling. A fully self-supported trip can be one of the most liberating and fun things to do on your bike. On any self-supported trip, it is vital that everything from the bike to the bags is up to scratch. We all know the feeling of being stranded miles from home due to an unforeseen mechanical or equipment failure. Having to wait for a family member or friend to come and pick you up at the side of a road is never fun.
