Bikepacking Adventure #2
We will be meeting at Bike Tech in Cedar Falls at 9:00am June 10th, 2017 and heading approx 55 miles east to Backbone State Park. The route will be a majority of blacktop roads with a few miles of gravel to get to camp.
This will be a self supported trip and you to be responsible for carrying your own gear and supplies. With that being said, we are in Iowa and we are blessed with a Kwik Trip and Casey's store every 10 miles or so. That will allow us a few opportunities to grab some snacks, refreshments, water and supplies along the way. We will plan on one scheduled stop at around the half way point but we can make any needed stops and breaks as needed depending on the needs and pace of the group. As for food arrangements, please plan to either pack along your meals and equipment to prepare them. (i.e. camp stove, fuel, utensils)
The Schedule is just a loose representaion of our flexible timeline and we expect a few set-backs here and there.
