How long has it been since you’ve been bike camping with some friends? Well, pardner, that’s too long! Join Cycle Wild on a trip to Champoeg State Park on April 4th and 5th. Champoeg is a nearby gem that is rich in history and nestled right on the Willamette River.
The bike ride is yours for the cost of just a few calories, and the hiker/biker camping is only $5 per person, payable at the park. To participate in this trip, you must become a member of Cycle Wild, which will provide you with insurance on this trip and any other official Cycle Wild trips this year.
Sign up for the trip and pay your $10 membership fee ($5 for kids under 12) here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/champoeg-bike-camping-tickets-16268468427
We’ll depart at 9:30am on Saturday the 4th and return to the same location Sunday the 5th. Departure location details will be e-mailed to registrants. The trip will be under 30 miles, and feature a food stop approximately halfway through the ride in Canby.
While it is still early season and may be rainy, this trip is rain or shine, and at the park there is an outdoor pavilion where we can cook and socialize, so don’t feel like you will need to be trapped in your tent all afternoon and evening. Still, please do make sure to bring wet-weather biking and camping gear, and make sure you have some dry clothes to change into after we arrive. There are warm showers and flush toilets on site.
Please feel free to ask your ride leader Chris McCraw any questions you might have about the trip. His email is gently (at) gmail (dot) com.
