Bikepacking Camps

Camps will include instruction on packing your bikes, backcountry camping, Leave No Trace principles, trip planning, navigating, route finding, backcountry safety plus much more. Instruction will take place on-the-bike as we ride a section of either the Idaho Hotsprings Bikepacking Route or the Moody Forest Loop, enjoying the gorgeous mountains of central and east Idaho. Each route will cover roughly 65 miles through some of the most beautiful terrain Idaho has to offer. We will ride primarily on Forest Service roads while camping at dispersed sites in the Payette and Targhee national forests. Our intermediate trip will add some additional mileage with singletrack day trips from camp. Be sure to bring your climbing legs as all routes have big ascents on loaded bikes. The scenery and rewards at the end of each trip will make all the effort worthwhile.
