Event description

Description

The second of our family-focused bike camping trips is a scenic, and somewhat more challenging, ramble west of Madison.

The ride from The Cargo Bike Shop to Brigham County Park is approximately 30 miles. We will spend the majority of our ride on the Military Ridge State Trail (trail passes required, can be purchased at The Cargo Bike Shop). The path is paved asphalt to start, transitioning to crushed limestone in Verona. Terrain is slightly uphill all the way to the park entrance (approx 750ft elevation gain), but very manageable. There are well spaced stopping points with easy access to services along the way. In the past we’ve stopped in Verona, at Riley Tap, and Mt. Horeb before we arrive at the park. You can ride with the group or use our queue sheet and ride at your own pace and/or your own schedule.

The group site at Brigham Park has plenty of great spots for your tent, a campfire ring, and pit toilets. Water is available at the main campground (we will provide water coolers to save everybody trips). From the campsite you can ride to Blue Mound Park to use their pool if you wish, or you can enjoy the parks playground and large grassy fields for recreation.

What's provided:
- Guided group ride to and from the group campsite. For those that can't ride with the group we'll have queue sheets to help you find your way
- Grill to cook on and a water cooler for easy water access
- Gear shuttle, including cooler space, in case you have some necessities or food that must be kept cold that you don’t want to lug on your bicycles
- Campfire wood and s'mores fixings
- Coffee from Cafe Domestique and a selection of pastries from Batch Bakehouse Sunday morning
- 2 Silipint commemorative glasses – choose from pint or half pint size

For those looking to make the meal planning portion as easy as possible, give Underground Butcher a call and they will assemble a meal to meet your tastes and group size. We will coordinate picking up and transporting meals ordered at Underground to the campsite for you if you desire, just let us know.

There is car access and parking available if you have part of the family that wants to drive to join us.

This is a family bike camping trip first and foremost, but if don't have kids and want to experience bike camping you are welcome to join. Just be cool with kids being around and the schedule accommodating their needs as far as stops along the way and quiet time at the campsite. Basically, kids of all ages are welcome!

If you have questions about if you can do it, if your group will fit in, or really anything please contact us and we'll help figure things out.
