    As said, pre-scout the area for trees, water etc.
    Thanx Gargoyle.

    I did mine on rail-trails but it would be the same for road trips.

    Biking and hammocking seems like a natural pairing to me! Even if it's not a multi-day tour, taking a hammock along on a long ride affords one the opportunity to hang and rest in a park before continuing a long trek home.

    Yep... sometimes when I do a 50 mile day ride I throw the hammock and straps in my bag just in case... I figure it only weighs a little over a pound, I don't even notice it.

    Anyone else have experience bicycle camping with a hammock?

    Here is my set up.

    a basic setup





    Hey, I like the extra wheel but it costs almost twice as much as my el-cheapo bike and paniers.

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing your pictures guys. Definitely going to look into a new set-up for my mountain bike. The 100lb trailer behind my fixie wasn't as enjoyable as you'd think.

    Fixie? Ouch... didn't notice that when I looked at the picture before! What gearing? I run 48/16 on mine, but I'd never pull anything with it!

    Here's my touring setup:



    That was before I converted to hammock, but this pic is from a tour with the hammock:

    Love the Brooks saddle! Very nice set up.

    I'm currently running a flip flop hub with the fixed side at 17t and the freewheel at 19t...49t chainring. It's moderately hilly where I live and let me tell you, I was cooked after pulling that trailer for 3 hours in 90 degree heat. http://connect.garmin.com/activity/39934922
