Bikepacking the Kokopelli Trail

Bikepacking the Kokopelli Trail

Last Fall I started a “To Do List” and one of the first things on it was to bikepack the Kokopelli Trail.  Haven ridden at both ends of the trail I was curious to know what laid in between.  The Kokopelli Trail is 139 miles long and travels from Loma, CO and Moab, UT.  It consists of mainly dirt roads and old […]

Best, Worst, and Biggest of 2014

For a little light humor I wanted to share what I found to be my Best, Worst, Biggest and Weirdest moments of 2014.   Best Bike I rode:  Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt Discovery:  3M Scotch Brand Super 77.  We’ve all seen riders abandon the Tour.  When they do someone “Peels” their number off.  Note, they don’t unpin the number.  Have you […]

Schofield Pass

Schofield Pass

This past Monday I decided to ride Schofield Pass despite the weather forecast saying there was a 70% chance of rain, but not just rain but at times heavy rains.  Our route was to take us through a river valley which was probably not the smartest route as for weeks we have been having flood warners almost daily. We got […]

This could be anything from ultralight singletrack tours to fully loaded dirt road touring (e.g. on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route).  bikepacking.net focuses on off-road touring, away from cars.
