If you love to camp and you love to bike then we have the event for you! For it's 6th year in a row, the annual Atlanta Cycling Festival Bike Camping Trip returns!
Come experience Bike Camping with some amazing people as we cruise out to Rockmart on the beautiful Silver Comet Trail.
We will meet at the Silver Comet Trail Head Saturday morning, biking out to Rockmart (38.7miles), bike camping overnight at The Rock Park and then heading back to the Trail Head Sunday morning (38.7miles).
The trip is fully catered - snacks, lunch, dinner, breakfast, and more snacks. Beer (from Eventide Brewing), drinks plus delicious Symphony Potato Chips, Roots Hummus, and more! Food and fire will all be provided by the Atlanta Cycling Festival. Oh yeah! We'll even haul all your gear in a fantastic van. All you need to bring is your sleeping bag and tent.
This event has had rave reviews, year after year. In short, the spots won't last long!
Expect a weekend full of bikes, nature and great food!
Cost: $75/ticket Note: This event is ridiculous amounts of fun and always sells out.
Special thanks to this year's sponsors:
************************* FAQ ************************
Q: What do I need to bring? A: A bike, sleeping bag, warm clothes, waterproof jacket/pants (in case it rains), tent, personal items and any beverages you will want. PLEASE PACK LIGHT. We only have so much room in the Zipcar Van. Pack as if you had to take everything on your bike.
Q: Will I have to carry anything? A: Nope! We'll load up all the supplies in our van. Thus, you get to bike free of cargo on the Silver Comet Trail.
Q: Do I need a special bike? A: No but yes. Any bike is fine, but whichever you choose, please make sure your bike is fully tuned up and able to maintain a reasonable pace. This is a "no one left behind ride" but we do expect you to ride at a 10-12mph (AKA social) pace during the trip.
Q: What if I've never bike camped before? A: No problem! This trip is for the newbie to the seasoned pro. All skill levels welcome. Just make sure that you can handle the distance (~40mi) and the pace (10-12mph).
Q: What about food? A: All food for this trip is taken care of by the ACF. On Saturday, we will provide lunch and dinner. On Sunday, we will provide breakfast and light snacks at lunch. Feel free to bring some extra snacks to share. The menu will be announced closer to the event. We will have vegetarian/vegan options available for every meal.
Q: What about food allergies? A: If you have any food allergies, please let us know. We will have vegetarian/vegan and meat options. If you have allergies to peanut, soy, gluten, etc, please communicate this to us.
Q: What about bathrooms and showers? A: Plenty of bathrooms are located along the trail and at the campsite. There are showers at the campground.
Q: Where does the money go? A: Ticket sales will go towards covering the costs of camping (food, drinks, camp site, etc.) and the remaining proceeds will be used to produce the Atlanta Cycling Festival.
Q: Is there an age limit? A: All participants must be 18yrs or older, unless accompanied by a parent.
Q: Why are there a limited number of tickets? A: We want to keep this small and intimate.
