Nomad Three Day Bikepacking Adventure Ride

The Nomad Three Day Bikepacking Adventure Ride is precisely what it claims:  Three days of mixed-terrain adventure riding in the nomad style.  We're moving campsites each of the two overnights -- and we carry with us everything we need to have an amazing adventure.

For us, it's difficult to imagine a more fun ride than this.  It's a compact amount of time, it's all very rideable for experienced mixed-terrain riders, it gets us out in nature to decompress from the world around us, and we get to eat tons of food around a big campfire.  That's all we could possibly want.  We hope you feel the same way.

Join us for this simple group bikepacking ride that brings us back to nature.

If you haven't done a bikepacking trip before, this is a great way to start.  This is a fully supported event -- we have the campgrounds ready to go, we've got roving support vehicles, and we've got all the food worked out.  You just have to pedal and enjoy an amazing weekend that will have you hooked on bikepacking.

Here Is the Ride Schedule

Friday, July 21:  We depart at 6:30 pm and ride about 30-miles of mixed terrain, until dark, to the first campsite.  Dinner and a big fire will be waiting for you.   

Saturday, July 22:  Breakfast will be served beginning at 7:30 am.  We pack up and depart at 10:30 am.  We ride mixed-terrain all day until we arrive at the evening's next campsite by dusk.  We once again have an amazing dinner and fire for you.

Sunday, July 23:  One last big breakfast before we head back out onto the trail.  We're back to the start point by 4pm.
