For the third year in a row, Swift Industries is putting out a global call for a bikepacking overnighter to take place on Saturday night closest to the Summer Solstice — June, 24th, 2017. Given that this is one of the longest days of the year — for folks in the Northern Hemisphere — that means more time for riding, swimming, fishing, cooking, rock climbing, or whatever other fun times you want to weave into your solstice overnight trip. For a few ideas on how to plan your 2017 Swift Campout, check out our bikepacking routes map. Otherwise, plan your own. Here’s the official press release from Swift with more information:
Seattle, WA — Swift Industries announces Swift Campout, its 3rd annual bike-camping campaign. Nominated “Best New Event” in BIKEPACKING.com’s 2015 Bikepacking Awards, the event calls adventure cyclists worldwide to go on a bike-camping overnight on June 24th, 2017. Leading up to the event, the Swift Campout campaign serves as a twelve-week digital skillshare for the adventure community and includes assignments and prizes issued every two weeks for generating bike-camping content for the Swift Campout community.
Swift Campout is hosted at builtbyswift.com/swiftcampout, where bicycle-campers register their Campout to gain access the digital skillshare dispatch for challenges and assignments to earn high quality outdoor and cycling gear from our presenting partners.
