Wabash Trace Bike Packing Campout

Posted by shawn.ovenden on Aug 9 2015 - 12:04am

This weekend is the Wabash trace Bikepacking trip.

Bike Packers:

We will be using Tom Bybee's trailer.  We will meet Thursday night at 7pm at the church to to a gear shakedown and to pack the tailer.  Remember to pack light.  We will be riding in the dark for a portion of the ride Friday night.  I would sugest bike lights.  If you do not have a bike light then I would suggest a head lamp.  I use these on many night rides and simply strap them onto my helmet.  Helmets are mandatory.  Let me know if you do not have a helmet...I have at least one extra.  I would also suggest a pair of padded bike shorts.

August Court of Honor.
