After a long wait, we’re hosting our bikepacking events again! The decision to begin running events has obviously not been easy. And just as we were starting to settle our plans, the Delta variant became a major concern. We are forging ahead with our plans but prioritizing safety every step of the way.
The majority of our events this fall will be bikepacking trips and our monthly breakfast by bike rides. Offering in-person events is a challenge to do in both a fun and safe way. But we have a plan to give one a try…
FilmedByBike Screening Sept.14th – SOLD OUT
In celebration of our new downtown location, we’re screening Filmed By Bike’s about to be released, updated Adventure Shorts at Borderlands Brewing’s spacious outdoor patio. The screening is sponsored by Salsa Cycles and all proceeds go to support El Grupo Bikepacking. This collection of adventure flavored film shorts offers some great inspiration as we get into the fall cycling season.
We have Borderlands patio reserved for the evening and we are organizing well spaced seating for 60 guests. Check in and wrist band pickup will be down the block at Campfire Cycling. We will be asking guests to wear masks when not seated.
Tuesday, September 14th from 7 to 9PM!
Tickets are $10 in Support of El Grupo Bikepacking
Breakfast by Bike is Back!
We’re bringing back our monthly Breakfast by Bike rides. We meet up for a short ride to a park and cook up some breakfast. Cook up your own or enjoy some of our coffee and pancakes.
We’re kicking the first one off on Thursday, September 2nd at 7AM, meeting up at Himmel Park and riding to Rio Vista Natural Resource Park.
See Details and RSVP.
