Similar to the term “backpacking”, the term “bikepacking” is the sport or activity of exploring new places on your road bike while carrying a backpack. Not to be confused with the word “touring”, which many associate with old people leisurely tooling around with panniers and helmet mirrors at painstakingly slow paces.
“We went on a two-day bikepacking trip from San Fran to Morro Bay. What a beautiful ride along the coast!”
