Bikepacking Adventure #1
We will be meeting at Bike Tech in Cedar Falls at 12:30pm Saturday May 6, 2017 and heading approx. 13 miles north to Ingawanis Boy Scout Camp. The route will be a mix of blacktop and gravel roads to get to camp.
If you cant fit all your gear on your bike don't worry, we can haul a bag for you! We will be doing a bag drop service for those riders needing this service. Please pack your gear in a soft sided duffle/dry bag and please limit to 30lbs.
