Come along on Swift’s very own Swift Campout for a stellar solstice bike-overnight for folks heading out for their first bike camping experience and the lifelong adventurers alike. 2022 Farm Roads Route will be lead by Seattle own Roxy Robles, more about Roxy in a moment.
Our posse will join kindred campers in our wilderness cul-de-sac for an evening of solstice celebrations at the Tolt McDonald Group Site. For everyone’s comfort and safety, riders should be comfortable riding the 40-mile route at a pace of about 10 miles per hour with their fully-loaded bike. If this is untenable, please consider riding with a group with a more appropriate pace for you.
Saturday 6/25 – Meet at Peleton Cafe at 10:30am. . From there we’ll pedal 45ish miles out to camp by way of low traffic roads & paths. The pace is social but steady, and we’ll stay as a group for the ride. First-timers are encouraged, read on for Bike Camping 101 opportunity. Riders looking for quicker pace, join us a camp. Register here!
Sunday 6/26 – folx are welcome to amble home on their own or join the group back to Seattle at about 9:30am, 40sih miles. View the route HERE.
