Event description

Description

The first of our family-focused bike camping trips is a great introduction to family camping by bike.

The ride from The Cargo Bike Shop to Lake Farm County Park is approximately 7 miles and consists almost entirely of bike path. Terrain is flat to slightly rolling and should be manageable for most cyclists, even kiddos if you are patient. 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 Lake Farm Park has plenty of great spots for your tent, a campfire ring, a well with a hand pump for water, and "deluxe" pit toilets. Fromt the campsite there is easy access to a large playground as well as to Lake Waubesa.

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 sizes

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.
