The Bikepacking Journal – Issue 02
The Bikepacking Journal is a printed collection of inspiring writing and beautiful photography that is simply too good to be confined to a screen.
We had no idea what to expect when we launched the inaugural issue of The Bikepacking Journal last fall, and we’ve been floored by its reception. So it’s with enthusiasm and pride that we present this second 148-page collection of pedal-powered writing and photography from around the world.
This time around, we dig deeper into a range of themes and questions. What responsibility do we have to the places we pedal through? To the people whose everyday lives intersect our journeys? How does failure shape our mindset for future endeavors? What can we learn from the people who blazed trails before us? Our contributors take us further into new experiences and unfamiliar territory. They also find fresh meaning in places they’ve pedaled countless times before.
