Bikepacking With Joyful Riders

- At


Load up your tent and sleeping bag onto your bike, meet new friends, and sit around the fire sipping something delicious with us as we celebrate autumn with an epic group bike camp-out!

Our first group camp-out in May was so wonderful that we had to plan another almost immediately. This time around, Freewheel Bike will drive bags to the campsite — limit 1 bag per person — for those who’d rather not carry all their stuff by bike!

This will be an incredible time—the perfect way to bid goodbye to summer and welcome autumn into our lives. Join us!


On September 22, we’ll meet at Surly at 11 a.m., for brunch and/or lunch together until 1 p.m., then head out on a group bike ride of about 25 miles (50 round trip). Our route will include two stops to rest and regroup. Once we reach the campsite, we’ll set up camp and hang out!

This family-friendly event will be ticketed, as our campsite is limited to 200 people. Your $10 ticket gets you access to our private campground, a professionally led, welcoming-paced group ride courtesy of the Joyful Riders Club, a selection of eats and drinks, a raffle ticket, and other surprises. There are always surprises.
