Event description

Description

Let's go camping! As part of Adventure Cycling Association's Bike Travel Weekend we're doing a family bike overnight Saturday, June 3rd through Sunday, June 4th at Illahee State Park.

Illahee is new for a Kidical Mass trip, but I've camped there a few times without a big group. Here's a write-up with lots of pictures from a camping trip the kids and I took last year.

I have all the pertinent information below, but please see my Family Ride blog webpage for the event for more details about the route and park.

PRICE:
I've already reserved and paid for three full-sized sites. The tiny hiker/biker sites are $12 so we'll plan for $12 per family to cover the cost of the bigger sites. This will be paid while camping.

TIMELINE:
8:00 a.m. Saturday, June 3, 2017 – meet outside Fremont PCC Natural Market or earlier if you need last-minute groceries (kids get a free piece of fruit!) or want to go in for potty visits.
8:15 a.m. we ride! Promptly at 8:15 a.m.! (Which means 8:20, but for real we are leaving by 8:20!)
– or –
9:40 a.m. meet us at the ferry (pay in the kiosk, get in line).
10:00 a.m. Seattle-Bremerton ferry sets sail (ARRIVE AT LEAST 20 MINUTES EARLY).

ROUTES:
* Group ride to Ferry: Fremont Bridge to Seattle Ferry Terminal
* Saturday to camp: Bremerton Ferry Terminal to Illahee State Park

BIKES ON FERRIES INFORMATION

SUNDAY
We'll decide when to head back home come Sunday. There will likely be an early crowd and a later crowd. I'll probably be part of the later crowd. The later group will head to Peddler Brewing Company for a Seattle-side hangout before going our separate ways. Our route from Illahee to the ferry is a backtracking of our Saturday route over and here's the route from the ferry terminal to Peddler.
