We had no idea what to expect when we launched the inaugural issue of The Bikepacking Journal last fall, and we’ve been floored by its reception. So it’s with enthusiasm and pride that we present this second 148-page collection of pedal-powered writing and photography from around the world.

They also find fresh meaning in places they’ve pedaled countless times before.
