Ultralight Bike Touring and Bikepacking is the result of over 100,000 miles of lightweight human-powered travel undertaken domestically and internationally by Justin Lichter and Justin Kline. Together they detail backcountry skills, bikepacking gear, and lightweight traveling techniques for self-supported cycling adventures, whether you’re planning an overnighter or multi-month adventure. Whether you are a beginner or a veteran, this is the most comprehensive book yet on traveling further and lighter.
Justin Lichter has hiked more than 35,000 miles since 2002, including thru-hikes on the Appalachian Trail, International AT, Eastern Continental Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, Pacific Northwest Trail, Continental Divide Trail, Great Divide Trail, as well as treks in the Southern Alps, New Zealand, Africa, Iceland, and the Himalaya Range. He is a “Triple Crowner,” having hiked the ECT, PCT, and CDT (more than 10,000 miles) in one year. Check him out at justinlichter.com.
Justin Kline has pedaled loaded bicycles tens of thousands of miles. While he prefers the dirt and solitude of the wilderness, that hasn’t stopped him from exploring some of the busiest cities around the globe on two wheels. Whether on the Great Divide, at home in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, or in an olive grove halfway around the world, his best rides end under the stars with nothing more than what was carried on his bicycle. Justin currently works remotely while pedaling on an open-ended international bike tour. He lives in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire.
