There are 105 reasons why this weekend isn’t ideal to go bikepacking, from, “It’s looking drizzly on day two”, to “I’ve never bikepacked before!”
No matter which excuses your mind is conjuring up for you, we think your inner bikepacker deserves an adventure. And the Ride – Camp – Ride challenge is the nudge you need to get out there.
Ride – Camp – Ride?
Set yourself a bikepacking challenge in September that’s doable in 48 hours or less. It could be getting out on your first ever multi-day ride, bringing your kids along for the first time, or pushing the distance you can cover in a 48-hour period. If you consider it a challenge, we’ll consider it a challenge.
Complete the challenge and not only will you bag yourself an awesome summertime adventure, you could be celebrating your achievement with a year’s subscription to komoot Premium, or even a Cannondale Topstone bike.

First day of the mini-bikepacking excursion I did with Carly in Sauerland. The ride took us from the quiet parking space at the Arnsberg tennisclub, up to the Ossenstein Hütte, a forest shelter perfect for a nice bivy.
The ride might be only 52 km, but the ride is rough at parts, hilly all the time. Some hike-a-bikes might be needed. Mostly off-road forest and gravel roads, some singletracks.

After work microadventure to one of the best viewpoints of Häckeberga nature reserve. Luckily I could leave from work a bit earlier, so we arrived right on time at the camp site for golden hour. Fired up the stove and head a tikki masala rice curry while enjoyed the spectacular view. In the far distance you can see Malmö and even the skyline of Copenhagen.
Day 2 of the microadventure to Genarp. Freezing cold night in our hammocks (two degrees Celsius) but a sky filled with a million stars. The ride back home needs to involve a mandatory fika stop (= Swedish coffee break) at Wahlgrens Bageri in Blentarp.
Day 1 was a ride of three parts. Part 1 was a gentle warm up along the banks of the River Ouse between Seaford and Lewes. This followed the route …
Day 2 begins with a leisurely breakfast in the wooden dining areas that resemble a wild west style ranch. It's great for watching sleepy campers awake from their slumber. My friends disappear off for a swim in the lake before and discovering the delights of the open air showers and bath tubs. We also spot a pair of storks flying over the campsite.
I landed in Lisbon in the afternoon….just the time to make my Topstone (Pippina) ready and we left the city by ferry…direction: Seixal
Then we abandoned the main road recommended by the track, to continue to Arrabida ... a lot of rise, but at the end breathtaking views....and After direct to Setubal where I camped on the beach
