Bikepacking Roots has just released its 4th Annual Bikepacking and Adventure Cycling Community Survey, and wants to hear from cyclists of all backgrounds. By filling it out, you’re eligible to win one of nearly three dozen prizes, including a Specialized Turbo Creo SL Comp Carbon e-bike, bags from Revelate Designs, Oveja Negra, Rockgeist, Outer Shell, and Makeshifter Canvas Works, a prize pack from Stan’s NoTubes, Ride with GPS and Gaia GPS app subscriptions.

Through this survey, Bikepacking Roots is striving to better understand accessibility challenges, barriers to entry, personal safety concerns, and individuals’ outdoor backgrounds as they all relate to the adventure cycling experience. This knowledge is critical to supporting the growth of a more diverse and accessible community. So if you’re a bikepacker, road tourer, gravel enthusiast, or backcountry mountain biker, one who embarks on bike adventures of any type, or are aspiring toward any type of bike adventure, your perspective is important to share. 

Bikepacking Roots is the only national non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and advancing bikepacking, growing a diverse bikepacking community, advocating for the conservation of the landscapes and public lands through which we ride, and creating professional routes. The organization and its members value human-powered experiences and an inclusive, engaged, and informed membership strong that makes a positive impact as we adventure by bike.
