My wife and I enjoy bicycling on the Katy Trail, which used to be a railroad line but has been converted to a nature trail for biking and hiking enthusiasts. The trail is about 225 miles long stretching between Machens, Missouri and Clinton, Missouri. I’ve met several people who claimed to have ridden from one end to the other and know a few people who have set a goal to do so. When I ran across this posting about a “Bikamper” I immediately thought of them.
The Bikamper is a revolutionary idea for mountain bikers who want to cut the stress of weekend missions in the wilds. It’s made of light waterproof nylon and uses the bike frame and front wheel as tent pegs, which makes for lighter work.
With two ventilation windows that double as a skylight for staring at the stars at night and a waterproof fly, the design is both functional and aesthetic. A solo traveler’s dream.
What happens to the tent when you want to go for a cycle? I packs down into a small sack that can easily be strapped on the front or rear of your bike.
