Intro to Bikepacking Series

Bikepacking, what is that? It’s somewhere between touring by bike and backpacking. The idea is to be able to explore any road, trail or path via bike while being totally self-supported. It allows one to get out to remote places and experience the world at a cycling pace. Come learn about the exciting possibilities of bikepacking with, Endurance House Director of Cycling and Head Bike Fitter, Eddie O’Dea, as he prepares to take on the 2800 mile Great Divide route this summer as an awareness and fund raiser for the Georgia Interscholastic Cycling League.

The Intro to Bikepacking Series clinics will cover everything you need to know about how to prepare yourself, your bike and your gear to complete your first bike packing adventure. The series will consist of two clinics at Endurance House Atlanta and one bike packing outing with Eddie as your guide. The outing will be designed to give you a taste of what is possible with bikepacking without being overwhelming. We’ll take care of the planning, navigation and even provide dinner and breakfast, so you can enjoy the journey.
