GoodSpeed Cycles Off-Leash Overnighter Bullfrog Lake is a nearly all-trail, 70-mile round trip overnight loaded bikepacking adventure from Homewood to Camp Bullfrog Lake near Willow Springs, Illinois. This Off-Leash Overnighter rolls out from GoodSpeed Saturday at high noon, spending a beautiful night tent camping under the stars at the Forest Preserve District of Cook County's Camp Bullfrog Lake, returning to Homewood Sunday morning before your busy week even knows you were gone.


Where, when, & how far
This last of three Off-Leash Overnighters leaves GoodSpeed Cycles, 2125 W 183rd Street in Homewood, Illinois at 12:00pm on Saturday, September 8 for a 45-mile roll along the Chicago Southland's regional trail system to Camp Bullfrog Lake near Willow Springs, for a night of tent camping under the stars.

We'll roll 25 miles home to Homewood early Sunday at 8am after breakfast, along the Cal-Sag Trail, Tinley Creek Trail, and popular cycling routes after breakfast. 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 spend a night outside.

Bike campers 12 - 112 years old - $85
Bike campers 0 to 11 years old - Free!


Do Off-Leash Overnighters benefit area trails?
Net proceeds from Off-Leash Overnighter are donated to Trails for Illinois, a 501c3 non-profit, to spend on area trails and trail projects.
