Hello World!

Welcome to Backpacks & Bike Racks! A blog about hiking, biking and other outdoor endeavors.

We are a young couple living in Vancouver, BC who enjoy the outdoors. I commute via bike during the week and we hop around town on our bikes on the weekends. We are lucky enough to live in a city with excellent cycling infrastructure and we enjoy taking advantage of it.

On weekends we also go for day hikes up to the local mountains and in our spare time we plan out longer trips for the spring and summer.

When planning some of our recent hikes we found that some of the information we wanted to find just wasn’t accessible. So we decided to make the information we compile for ourselves also available to others.

Outside of hiking and biking, we enjoy playing boardgames and are a bit on the nerdy side – it isn’t unheard of for us to cosplay as characters from Firefly or a Doozer.

I hope you enjoy reading!
