Intermediate Overnighter to Buenos Aires & Arivaca

November 6, 2021 @ 9:00 am November 7, 2021 @ 4:00 pm

$25 Tickets: All Funds to Support El Grupo Bikepacking

We’re headed back to the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Area for a repeat of our route through the area. Our first ramble of this ride was in March of 2020 right before the world shut down. Little did we know what was around the corner.

This trip does have some challenges to it. We’ll call it intermediate level and not advisable as a first time bicycle campout.

The terrain is mostly gravel roads with some rough and sandy sections. We recommend a minimum of 50mm tires.

We’ll be riding about 30 miles out to campsite 82 and then about 30 miles back the next day, passing through Arivaca.

We will be self-supported and do not have plans for a sag wagon to join us. There will not be water at camp however there is water available about 6 miles before camp as well as 2 miles beyond the camp on the second day.

We will be contacting everyone who signs up for the ride to make sure they are prepared for the ride. Please sign up if you plan on joining us.

We will be parking our cars and meeting at the start of the route along West Arivaca Rd. and meeting at 9AM on Saturday morning. There is a pullout with parking, but this is remote unattended parking.
