GoodSpeed Cycles Off-Leash Overnighter is a bite-sized sundown-to-sunrise bikepacking adventure in Homewood, Illinois. The Off-Leash Overnighter gives you and your family a chance to sneak away Friday evening, spend a beautiful night under the stars at Homewood Izaak Walton Preserve, and return Saturday morning before your busy life even knows you were gone.
Where, when, & how far
This first of three Off-Leash Overnighters leaves GoodSpeed Cycles, 2125 W 183rd Street in Homewood, Illinois at 6:30pm on Friday, May 18 for a slow 4-mile roll on quiet neighborhood streets to the beautiful Homewood Izaak Walton Nature Preserve just off Ridge Road for a night of camping under the stars.
We'll roll home early Saturday morning at 8am after breakfast, having slipped some adventure into our back pocket to get us through the weekend a little more relaxed, and looking forward to the next Off-Leash Overnighter. 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 - $35
Bike campers 0 - 11 years old - Free!
