We’re happy to announce Issue 03 of The Bikepacking Journal, set to print and start shipping to our Bikepacking Collective members all over the world in early November. The latest issue is our biggest one yet—we’ve increased the number of pages and rounded up a fresh batch of stories and essays from bikepacking trips in nearly a dozen picturesque new locations. And as an added bonus, each issue will ship with a hand-illustrated, fold-out map of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route and a Bikepacking Collective member patch.
Published just twice a year, printed in Germany using the highest quality materials, and available in limited quantities, we see The Bikepacking Journal as an alternative to today’s ubiquitous glossy magazines. It’s our hope that you’ll find the stories worth revisiting and sharing with friends. We’ve obsessed over every detail to design the most beautiful printed product possible, and to create the most enjoyable experience for our readers. Take a break from your screen, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and let our group of passionate contributors transport you to incredible dirt roads and trails in nearly every corner of the world. Find issue details below alongside web exclusives and the occasional Journal story we release to the public from archived issues.
