Introduction to Bikepacking

Join in a group ‘bikepack’ from Action Bicycle Club to the Waikuku Beach campground via the Pegasus Bay Coastal Pathway (see route map below).  🚵🏿  

Once there, we will camp overnight, and return to Christchurch the following day.

Bikepacking is “the synthesis of mountain biking and minimalist camping” – click here for more information.

This will be an introduction for new bikepackers and a trial run for bigger adventures.  You’ll learn tips, discover useful products and work on your tent pitching and camping skills!  ⛺
