General Info

Enjoy campfire hangs before and after the stories! Bring your own camping gear, and join in the pre-event campfire gathering to connect with fellow attendees, share your own biking anecdotes, and build excitement for the night ahead. After the storytelling, Holllis and her band will be playing some sings for us under the gazebo as we gather around the campfire to swap more stories, share laughs, and create memories that will last a lifetime.

We'll provide the campfire, but it's your stories and camaraderie that will truly make this a night to remember!
