Research, daydreaming. The whole of the world is at your fingertips and you can explore anywhere with the click of a mouse. We're not sure we can tell you how to get inspired, but videos, Instagram, websites are a good place to start. Budget The next thing to think about is budget. When bikepacking, the good news is that a trip can be pretty cheap. If you plan on setting out from home then all you really need is a bike and some luggage but Head further afield then you will need to factor in actually getting there too. However the cost of living at your destination of choice might be different too so Perhaps you’ll spend more on flights, but save on food and accommodation. Route So you’ve got the time, you’ve got the money, now the really exciting bit, route planning. Google maps is a good place to start, particularly if Google street view is available. It’s an option in a surprising number of places and it will give you a flavour of what to expect. Traffic levels, scenery, even climate. Do you have any cycling adventures lined up? If so, let us know what you've got planned. 👇 If you enjoyed this video, make sure to give it a thumbs up and share it with your friends. 👍 If you'd like to contribute captions and video info in your language, here's the link - http://gcn.eu/-e Watch more on GCN...
