Even as someone who often writes about bikepacking gear, I frequently find myself on Bikepacking.com, daydreaming of new adventures by bike. If you haven’t checked out their site, the Bikepacking Routes page is an awesome starting point for planning your next ride with everything from sub-24 hour overnighters to massive weeks-long journeys.

But it’s those overnighters that are getting some love with their recent contest. Appropriately named the Fill In The Map Local Overnighter Challenge, Bikepacking.com has partnered with Ride with GPS to add many more routes to make bikepacking more accessible to riders everywhere.

To add some inspiration to the mix, they’ve partnered with some great companies including Austere, Cedaero, Forager, High Above, Wolf Tooth Components, and more, to create prize packs that will be awarded to the best 20 routes.

The contest is open to riders anywhere in the world, and submissions are due by 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, August 15th, 2022. You’ll need to provide photos of the route, a link to a map (preferably Ride with GPS), and 150-300 words describing the route. Head over to the link below for more details and official rules!
