    Bikepacking overnighter

    An overnight bikepacking trip is the perfect introduction to the world of bikepacking. You don’t need a full expedition setup to embark on adventures—all you need is a sense of curiosity and a willingness to explore. Unlike longer multi-day journeys, like this one, an overnight bikepacking trip is a great way to enter the world of bikepacking.

    With just a small day pack or saddlebag containing essentials like a toothbrush and change of clothes, you can experience the thrill of self-supported travel. And while some hardcore bikepackers may opt to spend the night under the stars in a bivy bag, there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself to a bit of comfort by booking a hotel room along the way. After all, a good night’s sleep can make all the difference when it comes to enjoying your adventure to the fullest.

    Little Escape in Skåne

    Check out these snapshots from our overnight bikepacking adventure in Southern Sweden with a friend! I’ve always fantasized about traversing Skåne diagonally, from coast to coast, covering roughly 100 kilometers each way. Instead of rushing back and forth in a single day, we decided to treat ourselves to a cozy bed and breakfast. From stumbling upon new roads and breathtaking scenery to indulging in supermarket ice coffee and savoring pizza with a glass of wine, our escapade was packed with fun in under 5 hours! After a refreshing shower and a restful night’s sleep, we geared up for another day of pure bikepacking-fun—despite battling relentless headwinds throughout. It was definitely a little escape, but oh-so-worth it!
