Bikepacking Overnighter to Black Pine Lake

All levels, beginners welcome! May 18-19, FREE

Hop on your bike for our second overnighter of the spring to Black Pine Lake. This is the perfect next step for beginner bikepackers who want to keep building their confidence. Open to ALL levels and beginners welcome! We’ll spend the day pedaling up to the lake where you can jump in for a swim and relax after some hard-earned miles. And if you’ve still got gas in the tank, there will be an optional extension to continue riding up to the top of Buttermilk. More details and registration here!


Three-Day Bikepacking Loop to Conconully

Some bikepacking experience recommended, June 28-30, FREE

Take your bikepacking skills to the next level with a three-day, two-night bikepacking loop out to Conconully and back! This trip will be the final ride of our spring bikepacking series and offers a chance to test your skills on a longer route. This is an intermediate route with 10,000ft of climbing over nearly 90 miles, and some sections of rougher gravel roads. We’ll spend the first night in historic Conconully, where we can snag treats, resupply items, and perhaps even a burger. Day two will find us winding our way back up into the mountains before finding a camp at Tiffany Springs. The final day will be spent zooming back down toward Winthrop.
