Two For The Road: The Bikepacking Journal

Two For The Road: The Bikepacking Journal

“If you want to travel fast, travel alone. If you want to travel far, travel together” is an old saying which relates well to the cycling tourist. Bunyan Velo and bikepacking.com have taken it to heart and joined forces on a new venture: the Bikepacking Collective.

From the press release:

BIKEPACKING.com, the leading resource for bikepacking routes, stories, and gear-related content, has merged with Bunyan Velo, the acclaimed digital bicycle travel magazine, to publish The Bikepacking Journal. The forthcoming journal will be a bi-annually printed publication, jam-packed with 130+ pages of the very best in pedal-powered storytelling and photography from around the globe. Lucas Winzenburg, founder of Bunyan Velo and editor-in-chief of The Bikepacking Journal adds, “We’ve carefully considered every detail in the journal’s production, from paper stocks, to inks, to finishing techniques. To this end, it’s our hope that each issue will be a keepsake worth savouring and proudly displaying on the coffee table.”

The Bikepacking Journal will be offered as part of the Bikepacking Collective, a new membership program for BIKEPACKING.com. Bikepacking Collective contributions will go toward building a better, more sustainable BIKEPACKING.com, and creating original bikepacking routes, authentic stories, and quality guides and reportage. A Bikepacking Collective membership also includes access to exclusive merchandise, industry discounts, prizes, and a voice in the future of the BIKEPACKING.com website.

The inaugural issue of The Bikepacking Journal will be printed and shipped in early October 2018, with subsequent issues published in March and October of each year. Please visit bikepacking.com/join to learn more about the Bikepacking Collective and The Bikepacking Journal.
