Bikepacking Adventure #3
We will be meeting at Bike Tech in Cedar Falls at 9:00am October 14th, 2017 and heading approx 63 miles to Pinicon Ridge Park outside of Central City, Iowa. The route will be a mix of paved bike trail, gravel and blacktop to get to camp. When the forecast gets closer we will have a better idea but plan for cooler nights and bring clothing and camping gear for such. If you don't have any cold weather sleeping gear, no problem. Just go see our friends at Crawdaddy Outdoors in Waverly, IA for rentals or new gear.
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 likely to pass by a convieniece store every now and then to restock on snacks and water. 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)
For our 3rd and final bike packing trip of the year we have switched up some plans for you. We have joined forces with our friends from World of Bikes in Iowa City. WoB will be riding up and meeting us at camp to join in on our shenanigans and campfire stories. If you plan to start your adventure from Iowa City please check it out here for route details and departure times or just give them a call at 319-351-8337.
