June 14 - 15 – Reality Weekend: Bike Camping Weekend (Sat – Sun) - Self-contained bike touring is ... easier than backpacking, a great way to really experience the places you travel, and takes a little practice and fine-tuning to truly enjoy. We'll meet to discuss your packing list and equipment on June 3 (see above), then hit the road with our bikes and gear for a camping overnight at River Meadows Park in Arlington on June 14. BIKES and the ride leaders have some loaner equipment available - panniers and trailers.
Contact Ride Leader Kristin Kinnamon, 425-923-7868.
