In June Laurence McJannet, author of Bikepacking , gave a talk on his experiences of riding and camping outdoors. On August 31st we’ll be hosting a short overnight trip from the store to a local campsite.
On Saturday morning we'll lead a ride from Kilver Court to the campsite; a large loop of approximately 125km. We'll have time to set up tents, shower, then head to a local pub for an evening meal. The following morning we'll pack-up and have breakfast at The Feed Station in Merriott then take a more direct route back to Kilver Court (approx 70km), allowing you to enjoy the rest of your day.
If you’re interested in bikepacking but don’t yet have all the equipment this is a great opportunity to try it out. Purchasing lightweight tents and sleeping bags can become expensive so if you don't have these items already just drop-off your normal tent and sleeping bag to the store beforehand and we'll take it to the campsite ready for you when you arrive. Pack it away the next morning and we can bring it back to the shop ready for you to collect afterwards.
Sign-up closes midnight Tuesday 27th
