GoodSpeed Cycles Off-Leash Overnighter 219 is a bite-sized bikepacking adventure that gives you and your family a chance to sneak away from Homewood Saturday afternoon, spend a beautiful night of camping at Lake County, IN's Oak Ridge Prairie (along the Oak Savannah Trail!), and return Sunday morning before your busy life even knows you were gone.
Where, when, & how far
This second of three Off-Leash Overnighters leaves GoodSpeed Cycles, 2125 W 183rd Street in Homewood, Illinois at 1:00pm on Saturday, July 14 for a 20-mile roll on quiet neighborhood streets and paved regional bike paths to Oak Ridge Prairie near Griffith, Indiana, for a night of tent camping under the stars.
We'll roll home to Homewood early Sunday morning (20 miles back), July 15 at 8am after breakfast, having slipped some adventure into our back pocket to get us through the week. Kids welcome!
Both dinner and breakfast are included
You bring your bike loaded with the camping gear and supplies (tent or hammock, sleeping bag, extra clothes, guitar, ghost stories, etc...) you need to make it through spending a night outside.
Bike campers 12 - 112 years old - $65
Bike campers 0 to 11 years old - Free!
