Bicycles have been used for transportation of commodities and even international travel for ages. In the last decade, we’ve come face- to- face with a new fast growing trend: “bikepacking”! Simply put, bikepacking is a multi-day tour done on a bike on mixed terrain or fully off-road while the cyclist carries their supplies on their bike. It might be as simple as a few weekend jaunts or as complex as crossing entire continents. It's not only a convenient method to travel, but it's also an affordable way to see breathtaking scenery and get some exercise while doing so! Not only is it a convenient way to travel, but it’s also affordable and a great way to see some beautiful site.
The eBike revolution!
The eBike revolution has had a significant impact on how the world of active transportation is changing. Over the last decade, increasing numbers of people have turned to eBikes as a way of getting from A to B. And thanks to fast developments in the eBike technologies, eBikes are also becoming a popular alternative to cars, often being used by tourists and backpackers too.
