Bike Touring 101/Bike Camping 101, March 4-5

bikecampingathorsethieflakeblackwhiteYes, I know, this is sort of short notice, but that whole snow thing wrecked our schedules! But with spring on its way (for real!), now is a perfect time to think, plan, scheme, and talk about upcoming bike camping and touring adventures. We’ll be having TWO great back-to-back workshops in March, both workshops led by Cycle Wild board members Shawn Granton and Ed Groth!

First we’ll be having our Bicycle Touring 101 on Tuesday, March 4th. This will go over the things more specific to touring, like planning, and cost as well as day-to-day life on the road.

Then we’ll be having our Bike Camping 101 workshop on Wednesday, March 5th. We’ll be talking about the basics of two-wheeled camping: gear, where to camp, finding others to camp with, and many other tips.

Because both topics deserve a lot of time, please come to both if you are interested in both. We’re not going to talk much about bike camping during the touring workshop and vice versa. And asking a bunch of questions about bike camping during the touring workshop (or vice versa) will prevent us from talking about the topic on hand.

BOTH workshops are free. BOTH workshops start at 7pm on their respective dates, and will go on for at least two hours. BOTH workshops will take place in the basement of Velo Cult, 1969 NE 42nd Ave in the historic Hollywood District.

Hope to see you there!

Please let us know if you have any questions. Hope to see you there!

Cycle Wild Workshops for March: Bike Camping on the 12th, Bike Touring on the 28th

Bike Camping at Sunset Campground, Gifford Pinchot National Forest (Wash.)

While February is still “winter” around these parts, it’s a short month preceding the start of spring. And spring means longer days and better weather. A perfect time to think about bike camping and touring! And we’ll be having TWO great workshops in March, both workshops led by Cycle Wild board members Shawn Granton and Ed Groth!

First we’ll be having our Bike Camping 101 workshop on Tuesday, March 12th. We’ll be talking about the basics of two-wheeled camping: gear, where to camp, finding others to camp with, and many other tips. There won’t be much talk about touring, but if you are interested in both camping and touring, please take this one first!
And then we’ll be having the Bicycle Touring Workshop on Thursday, March 28th. This will go over the things more specific to touring, like planning, and cost as well as day-to-day life on the road. (Please note: this workshop is technically an Urban Adventure League workshop, not a Cycle Wild one, if that really makes any difference to ya.)
BOTH workshops are free. BOTH workshops start at 6:30 pm on their respective dates. BOTH workshops will take place at Velo Cult, 1969 NE 42nd Ave in the historic Hollywood District.
Please let us know if you have any questions. Hope to see you there!
