Preparing for Your First Bike Campout
January 8 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
We’ll be gathering at the shop for a discussion about heading out on your first bike campout. If you’re planning on joining us for our beginner campout to Catalina State Park, this will be a great session for bringing your bike all packed up to for any questions you might have.
We’ll be discussing various ways to approach heading out on your first bike campout. The overall message is to not worry about having the perfect setup but rather to gather up sufficient gear to be comfortable and get yourself out there. Just getting out there for the first time is key and it is much easier to begin making choices about optimizing your setup after you’ve gone on your first trip.
Somewhat related, is our post about preparing for your first bike campout even if you’ve never camped. This multi-step approach is designed for someone who is not comfortable camping and is working up to going bike camping on their own. If you’re an experienced cyclists and camper, joining us for this beginner campout is a great way to dive in.
