After a COVID hiatus, we are bringing back a full schedule of our popular Family Bike Camping trips for 2022!!

Our second family-focused bike camping trip 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. The terrain is flat to slightly rolling and should be manageable for most cyclists, even kiddos if you are patient. If it is safe to ride as a group, we will have a group departure from TCBS that you can join. If it is not safe to ride as a group, or you prefer to ride as your own group, we can provide basic directions if you need them. Trust us that Google Maps will get you there!

The group site at Lake Farm Park has plenty of great spots for your tent allowing us to spread out and each have our own space. Additionally, there is a campfire ring, a hand-pump well for water, and "deluxe" pit toilets. We may bring additional campfire pits depending on group size and health and safety considerations. From the campsite, there is easy access to a large playground as well as to Lake Waubesa. There are showers in the main campsite along with running water.

What's provided: - Group ride to and from the group campsite (if safe to do so). - Grill to cook on, coolers with ice, and a water jug for easy water access - Gear shuttle, including cooler space, in case you have some bulky/heavy necessities or food that must be kept cold that you don’t want to lug on your bicycles - Campfire wood and s'mores fixings - Piping hot coffee and a selection of pastries from Batch Bakehouse Sunday morning

There is car access and parking available if you have part of the family that wants to drive to join us, or not stay for overnight.

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.

COVID related fun stuff: We will follow any health guidelines in place at the time of the trip, including the use of masks when in indoor or close-quarters outdoor environments. We ask that at the time of the trip that if you are feeling ill or have been recently infected with COVID and have not had a PCR test come back negative yet, that you do not attend. Contact us to discuss a credit towards a future trip or a refund. If you are not fully vaccinated please do so for the safety of all in our community
