here we need to put as much info in as possible this will give a guideline to the structure of the business

Membership Fees

Does Bikepacking Trails have membership Fees or does it cost to submit a trail?

No and no. There is no cost to view or submit a trail. There are no hidden agendas. There are no costs. We want to share trails and ideas and help grow the bikepacking community.


Copyright

If I submit my route or photos can I still submit my content to other website and magazine?

Yes. You own all rights to your material. When you submit a trail or photographs to us all you are doing is giving us permission to share your work to a wider audience.


Who pays for the running cost of the site.

How do you guys make money from this site?

Our plan is not to make money from Bikepacking Trails. We created this site to share routes, photos and ideas. Money we receive from advertising on the site will cover the hosting and domain name. Maintenance and uploading material to the site are done by a team of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about bikepacking and want to encourage others to get out there and have their own adventures.


Do you review products on your site?

No. There are many websites out there in bikepacking and other adventure sports reviewing products. Some review items they get given to keep, other review products they haven’t even received! We want to concentrate on the trail aspect of our sport. If there is a piece of gear we like and we’ve been using for a while we’ll tell you about it. We will ask our writers what they use and their opinions but these should not be considered as product reviews.
