Bikepack Bootcamp

July 18-21

Guides: JayP & Jacob Hora

A 4-day training and education camp structured to help prepare riders for an upcoming ultra event. 

Located at The BikeTender Studio in Victor Idaho.

Riding will take place from the studio and head north towards Yellowstone National Park. It’s also where the Tour Divide Route comes through Idaho.

WHAT WE WILL DO:

We will meticulously go through bike set-up and gear (kit) and talk about mindset, goals, and strategies. 

This camp will also have a physical element to it while maintaining a balance of time in the saddle and rest to gain a training stimulus from it. We will discuss different cycling efforts, techniques, and suggest specific outputs/styles on sections of our daily routes so the individual can get the most out of each day's ride.

There will naturally be simulation tasks such as water purification, changing layers, eating while riding, bivy set-up, packing and unpacking your gear from your bike, food resupply etc. providing the opportunity to practice and become more familiar and efficient with your time, using your gear, and the work that needs to be done during an event.

There will be ongoing conversations about all elements of bikepack racing and suggestions on different ways to do different things to help set yourself up for success!
