The bikepacking routes project was launched nearly one year ago, and with it a goal to build a comprehensive and inspiring database of routes and related content. To support this effort, as well as take stock in feedback from several routes contributors, we made the decision to rename Pedaling Nowhere. Today we are thrilled to announce the official brand as

The rebranding exercise is part of a larger effort to continue to grow the website as a premier resource for bikepacking routes, gear insight, stories, and inspiration. In addition to a quickly growing library of gear reviews, now features roughly 60 bikepacking routes contributed by 16 riders from all over the world.

Additional changes to the website were made in preparation for the rebrand. These include logos for our ‘Editors’ Picks’ bikepacking routes (below), an updated responsive website design for mobile usability, and new sub-categorical organization within top level sections.

Bikepacking Routes will also be introducing several new design changes and content areas over the coming weeks. Additions will include educational content as well as elements to improve site usability. Look for ‘Editors’ Picks’ within Bikepacking Routes, a comprehensive ‘Bikepacking 101’ section, and more. Please stay tuned.

We welcome any and all feedback. Leave a comment below or send us an email at (info at

  • Awesome! Route logos look great.

  • Thanks Nicholas! Maybe HLC should get one… let me know if you think it’s worth being a ‘pick’.

  • Chris Balduc

    Very slick, well, designed site! Keep up the great work.

  • Thanks Chris!

  • Congrats!

  • Nate

    This is excellent! I’m always frustrated at the lack of bikepacking content/inspiration on the internet ( fat bikepacking in particular). I love the logos, organization, and vision of where this website, is going. Well done. This is going to be an awesome resource, thank you!

  • Thanks for the encouraging words, Nate!

  • Thanks Kent

  • Pavel “Zvirze” Zvěřina

    Even though I loved Pedaling Nowhere I have to say the rebranding is a great shift! I love the “skull” icon, how about a T-shirts … ?

  • Thanks Pavel. Well, I can say I’ve thought about shirts… making them happen might be a little more difficult. Stay tuned…

  • Eric Parsons

    Looks great Logan. Shirts are super rad, would love one!

  • thanks Eric! I’ll put you on the list!

  • Robert Grey

    i almost didn’t notice the change, except when I typed “pedalingnowhere” it changed to “” and i thought my browser made a mistake and took me to a certain other site.

    looks great! i also like the route badges. keep up the excellent work.

  • Thanks Robert!

  • Michael Viglianco

    Hard to call it Pedaling Nowhere when the routes are the focal point. Looks good.

  • Christophe Noel

    I’m excited to see where this all goes! Nice work, Logan.

  • kent

  • Thanks Christophe… Me too!

  • nin

    Even though I’m thousands of kilometers away from all routes I really enjoy the site and how the routes are presented.

    Maybe I’ll contribute some local South American routes :)

  • GPaudler

    I’d be more than happy to pre-order some shirts. It’s warm here, please do some not-dark colors too. Pedaling Nowhere has been the first place I look for an online backpacking fix and the new site looks even better. Great job, thanks!

  • Thanks!!

  • Awesome, thanks Kent! I’ll reach out soon.

  • Martin

    I’d definitely get one of those! Keep it up, thanks for the most inspiring site out there.

  • Angel and Michelle

    I’m excited for this update :)

  • They’re available now: … only a few available on a limited run though.

  • Alexey Kablukov

    Everything is great! Best bike touring source I ever seen!
