Bike Camp-Out Night Ride on the Towpath Trail

June 3-4, 2017

Adventure Cycling Association - National Bike Travel WeekendThe mission of the Adventure Cycling Association is to inspire and empower people to travel by bicycle. June 2-4 was designated as National Bike Travel Weekend, when we joined them to encourage anyone to try taking an overnight trip by bicycle.

On June 3, 2017, we transformed our regular Night Ride on the Towpath Trail into a Bike Camp-Out Night Ride!

We had a beautiful evening, and 90 riders showed up for the Night Ride. 16 people joined us to camp out for the night afterwards at Heritage Farms in Peninsula. We enjoyed sharing hot dogs, brats, popcorn, s'mores, and more around the campfire!

What to Bring

Okay, so technically this isn't "bike-camping," but "car-camping with a bike ride!" That will make it a little easier to pack, and you won't have to worry about packing all of your camping gear on your bike (unless you want to skip the car altogether and ride your bike from home to Heritage Farms).

Here is our suggested list of what you'll need:

  • You will need your own bicycle.
  • Helmet (required)
  • Headlight and taillight (required)
  • Water bottles with water or sports drink
  • Cycling clothing (appropriate for the weather)
  • Casual clothing for hanging out at camp
  • Tent
  • Camp sleeping pad
  • Sleeping bag
  • Camp pillow
  • Headlamp or flashlight for getting around the campsite after dark
  • Toothbrush, toothpaste, medications, any other personal items and toiletries you need
  • Mosquito repellent spray
  • Optional: Snacks and beverages for the evening and morning

If you've never been on one of our Night Rides on the Towpath Trail before, please see this page for general information, preparation and safety tips, and photos and videos from past rides.
