Bikepacking With Surly
Bikepacking with Surly
This event is on the books again for 2017. More information will be coming soon!
Want to ride bikes and drink beer and ride more bikes and camp and drink more beer?
So do we.
On Friday, September 23rd, we're going to meet up and ride from the beginning of Section 2 of the Colorado Trail to Buffalo Creek at 10am. You can arrive whenever you want, but we're rolling out at 11am sharp. Then we're going to camp for two nights. Then on Sunday, September 25th we're going to ride back to our vehicles. Or hitch rides back to our vehicles because there's no shame in that.
The ride is about 10 miles and mostly uphill. We'll probably stop at Chair Rocks because it's pretty there. We'll dump our camping stuff and then go for a ride! If we want to, that is. Then we'll camp! And drink beer!
Surly will have some demo bikes for you to use if you wish. The particulars are still being worked out. If there's something you've been dying to try, let us know and we'll see what we can do.
If you don't want to bikepack with us but you do want to camp with us, that's great! Meet us at the camping spot. Where is the camping spot? It'll be along road 550 wherever we can find it (it looks like site #31 is going to be the place!). Look for Yawp! and Surly banners. Look for hooligans. Look for denim vests.
On Saturday, we'll ride around Buff Creek as we see fit.
On Sunday, we'll ride back to our cars, and it will be almost all downhill. Yay!
If you have any questions about bikepacking, you're welcome to come to Yawp! at 6:30pm on Thursday, September 22nd. The Surly folks will be there and we can high five and share knowledge and goof around. If you want to demo one of their demo bikes, you could pick it up at this time.
No food or gear will be provided (though there may be some bikepacking bags to demo--more info on this later).
It'll be rad! Join us!
