A Night is All You Need

by Zander Nosler April 12, 2017

 

Adventure comes in an array of shapes and sizes, from extensive multi-day trips through remote landscapes to short jaunts in your own backyard. Sometimes all it takes is one night under the stars to hit your reset button. Getting out there on an overnighter elevates the monotony of the everyday to a new level of excitement, unfamiliarity and exploration. We found a great opportunity during the Spring Outerbike festival in Moab to wrangle some friends, pack up some overnight gear and get out on a micro-adventure in a beautiful landscape. After a full day of hustling at the event, our overnight escape began as we packed up our bikes and set off in search of some flat red rock. What followed was highlighted by beautiful light and a contemplative night under the stars.

A proper bikepacking trip can consist of one short local overnighter or a multi-week expedition into unknown territory. There are many ways to do it and not one of them is wrong. That said, there are certainties – lessons culled from hard-earned, real life experience – that we’d like to share.
