FUGA Bikepacking Leadership Training

With support from a community project grant from QBP, Campfire Cycling has partnered with FUGA (Familias Unidas Ganando Accesibilidad) and BICAS to develop a Bikepacking leadership training program.

With this program we aim to work with FUGA leaders to develop bikepacking skills so they in turn can lead FUGA bikepacking rides, passing on those skills to FUGA members.

In conjunction with this leadership training, we are developing a bikepacking gear library. The initial use of this gear library will be to support this leadership training program. The library will open up to all FUGA members at the new year as FUGA begins their bikepacking program.

We have developed these programs to expand access to bikepacking skills and gear to underserved communities in Tucson.
