Bike Carmel will be debuting an overnight family camping ride this season. The Bike Carmel: Family Camping S24O camping ride is a great introduction to bicycle touring and is designed to be much less intimidating. Sub 24-hour Overnight (S24O) rides have been increasing in popularity across the country and Bike Carmel is proud to host the first in the community.
Families will start at Founders Park in Carmel and ride as a group across town to West Park where they will camp overnight. Camping gear will be transported to the camping park for participants and there will be dinner, games for kids and parents and plenty of s’mores to go around for the evening. Sunday morning families will ride back to their starting point at Founders Park.
Bike Carmel: Family Camping S24O will take place on Saturday, June 1 to Sunday, June 2. The ride begins at Founders Park at 1 p.m. and families should anticipate returning on Sunday by noon. It is $75 per family (up to six people) or $35 per adult and $20 per child (17 and younger) and is limited to the first 75 participants. Each registered participant will receive an inaugural event t-shirt, Frisbee, drawstring backpack and food for the weekend.
