2019 Bikepacking Summit

We aim to create a passion-fueled weekend full of discussion, learning, and general bikepacking camaraderie at the cycling oasis of Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Getaway.

Below is a draft itinerary for the 2019 Summit. We will be consistently editing this itinerary as presenters and topics are solidified. The itinerary will be similar to what is listed below, but it is subject to change. We aim to have our final itinerary published two months ahead of the event. Follow us on Facebook for presenter and sponsor announcements.
