What makes a good bikepacking experience? Planning and being prepared. At least thats what I have been told. I hope to do my first bikepacking adventure this spring with more to follow this summer and fall. I had hoped to get my new El Mariachi out on a 24 hour overnight jaunt in the fall, but the schedule was just too busy. Yeah, thats a terrible excuse. I know.
I am planning a trip with some guys on a forum as well as with a coworker and some really good MTB friends that I don’t ride with nearly often enough.
If all else fails, I might even go solo and have my family meet me.
One thing is for sure. This IS going to happen. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
Here is a Map of Possible Bikepacking Routes for 2012 that my coworker made of the mountains in the east part of San Diego County. This is where my bikepacking journey is likely to begin.
