Forum: Riding Style

I thought BBC members might be interested in this.

On March 30, REI in Timonium is offering a class on Planning an Overnight Bike Trip.  That's just in time for the season and to plan to take part in National Bike Travel Weekend on June 3-5, which is one of the Adventure Cycling Association's 40th Anniversary celebrations.

You can check out the REI class here:  https://www.rei.com/events/planning-you … ium/138102

Hey, Maxine!

Thanks for the info!  It sounds like an awesome ride! Were you carrying much gear up those hills?

I looked at reserving one of the tent-only sites this weekend and they were completely booked. In New Freedom, I stayed at Summit Grove campground which is just off the trail before you reach NF from the south.  Nice people, but can't recommend the scenery or facilties.  But it was perfect for my trial run bike-camping, being within rescue distance if needed.  Now on to new adventures!

Of the places you've bikecamped, which places/rides would you recommend for someone new to it?

Hope to meet you on a BBC ride!  Are you doing Stuart Bonning's bike overnight in Virginia by any chance?

Thanks again!
Susan

Hey, all!

I just did my first bike-camping trip last weekend. Just a solo ride to New Freedom to test the gear, pitch a tent, etc.  But I think I'm hooked!

Could those of you who've posted on this thread share some of your routes/cue sheets (if you have them) for your bike-camping trips?  I'm especially interested in the mentions of Codorus State Park, the West Virginia loops, West Fork Trail, etc.

My campground for my first trip wasn't very scenic and I'd love to ride/pitch a tent someplace with a view.

Thanks for any help or advice any of you can offer!

Two websites you all may be interested in:  www.bikeovernights.org and www.crazyguyonabike.com.  The latter is a long-running collection of bike touring blogs that is very helpful, entertaining, and addictive!  Once you start, you just can't stop reading about these self-supported tours all over the world!

I'm also interested in touring though more inclined to so- called credit card touring than camping.  I have done a couple of overnights on the great allegheny passage and loved it.   You can reach me at susanglenn@glennwrite.com if you like to exchange touring ideas or get together for some rides.
