TWO BIKES + AMBC Social Ride Solstice Campout

June 22 @ 8:00 am - June 23 @ 5:00 pm

Join Two Bikes and AMBC Social Ride in celebrating this year’s Swift Campout, a global call to go bike-camping over the solstice weekend.

If you’ve been to the Two Bikes Solstice Campouts then you know the drill. If not, here’s the skinny: we’re loading up our bikes and lollygagging over to our friends at Low Meadow Farms for a night under the stars.

This year will be extra special thanks to a little help with some friends. As usual, beer and NA bevvies will be provided by our super-buds over at Albright Grove and Crafty Baker Creek. And to really make the whole night go ‘sha-pow’ Appethai will be providing the food!

All this is free (with a suggested donation of $20-30) but Riders MUST register and spots are limited. All you need to bring is your camping gear and stoke.

If you’re new to bikecamping/touring/packing/whatever you want to call it, then this is a great way to dip your toes into the water. Not sure what to bring? Check out this list.

Also we’re gonna try again this year to lead an all-terrain route (~13 miles) for those looking for a little extra spice. This route will be offered in three different flavors (very chill, pretty chill and hyper chill). If you want to get rowdy, you’ll need to show up early. All-terrain rides leave at 3:00pm.

This is a 21+ ride.

Challenge Level: Serious Amateur in Party Pace garb. Black Belt for all-terrain rides.

Distance/Elevation: 8.4mi/583 ft, 13.3mi/1161ft (all-terrain) — both distances are one-way

Average Pace: 8-10 mph

Link to Route: Ride with GPS, Ride with GPS (all-terrain)

Appropriate Bike: Any bike that can carry your camping supplies: tent, sleeping bag, extra food, water, etc. If you’re riding the all-terrain route, obviously bring a mountain bike, gravel bike or an ATB.

Rider Expectations:

Temperatures may vary so bring layers.

The Classic Road group leaves at 4:00pm. All-terrain rides leave at 3:00pm.

Even the regular route can be quite challenging and punchy. Be prepared to tackle some decent hills on a loaded bike.

We’ll supply drinks and food but bring extra of that stuff if you want. Riders are responsible for providing their own shelter.

This is a 21+ ride

Tool kits encouraged. Helmets required.
