Komoot isn't your typical GPS route planner and tracking app. It's not about leaderboards and performance; it's about community and shared experiences. Komoot's bikepacking feature is the latest development to help you find your adventure on two wheels. Not only does it allow you to plan your ride with great accuracy, but the platform allows you to interact with other users, discover their routes and get inspired.
In just a few clicks from the Komoot homepage, you can "Find your next adventure" by selecting bikepacking as an option. From here, you'll be welcomed by collections of routes from all over the world to help you narrow down your adventure while providing heaps of inspiration. Each bikepacking collection includes useful day-by-day route breakdowns, stories and useful information to help you determine whether the route is right for you. The Komoot bikepacking collections can be bookmarked for a later date and even amended so you can tweak the route to suit your needs. Just check out this collection about Scotland's magical northwest coast.
Once you have a route in mind, you'll need to prepare. What to take, how to pack, what bike is suitable and when to go. While that may sound like a lot to figure out, Komoot has made the entire planning stage of your bikepacking trip super easy. There are heaps of guides and real-life stories from the Komoot team and community that will help you navigate the challenging realms of packing efficiently, getting prepared and, more importantly, getting excited about your trip.
So whether you want to explore medieval ruins, seek out magnificent waterfalls or visit natural marvels, the Komoot bikepacking feature will help you experience a lot more than you bargained for.
