Bikepacking Tips: Water

Bikepacking is a super fun way to get outdoors on your bike and for this series of Bikepacking tips I thought I would start with the second most important thing needed for human survival: Water! Air is the first but luckily the outdoors has plenty of usable air available. This isn't necessarily the case with water on your planned route if you want to explore trails and campsites far away from urban areas. On shorter trips taking all the purified water you need with you may be a good option but this limits your range of travel. Also water is HEAVY and if you can source water along the way or at camp you can keep your bike a lot lighter.
