    A friend of mine has opened a bike shop in Redlands, Econo Bikes. He's putting together an over-nighter for Saturday the first of June. There is a chance of some weather, which is why it was re-scheduled once already.

    We'll be at the Thomas Hunting Grounds yellow post site: https://goo.gl/maps/66ctVJdkBD4h493VA

    You can bring your own gear, or drop off with him Friday and he'll bring it up.

    Some more info on their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/events/637503613341777/

    Y'all are invited to give it a try. A good opportunity to try out bike camping, as you don't need to have all the bags and gear when someone else is hauling it up the hill! I'm planning to cruise up Loch Leven on Saturday, and come down the SART on Sunday!

    Basic route I'm taking: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30121836?beta=false

    I had no idea they had yellow post sites there. If I was already car camping with a bunch of my running friends this same weekend; I might give it a try.

    I've never camped there, but the SART basically goes through them right there. If you've ridden it, it's at the intersection of the SART with 1N12 coming down from Constance Peak.

    I've never ridden that SART, only the paved one.

    You need to move that up a few lines on your to-do list!

    Sounds like a great experience but I will be floating on a boat in another state this weekend.

    For those who go, enjoy!
