How To Pack Your Bags For Bikepacking

Once you’ve decided on what kit you need to bring with you on your bikepacking trip, you’ll need to have a proper think about the order and placement of all your things on your bike. If the weight isn’t distributed correctly your bikes handling can be quite considerably affected. For example you want your heaviest items to go in a frame bag as the weight is the most central, and the lowest possible on the bike.
