Bikepacking is cycle touring without panniers. Instead we’re using tiny, lightweight bags strapped to the frames of our bikes that mean we can cycle off-road and camp in the wild.
Bothies are old empty buildings in wild places that are maintained solely for the purpose of housing hikers and the like.
A better explanation of what it’s about comes from this excellent video from Al Humphreys. Enjoy…
P.S. We’re using Genesis High Latitude 29-inch bikes and testing bikepacking bags from Ortlieb, Wildcat and Cycle Miles’ Gorilla Cages.
