On the weekend following this year’s Summer Solstice, bikepacking pros, Swift Industries welcomes you to pack up your saddle bags, backpacks, bikes, and whatever else you need for an overnight with your bike to participate in their second annual overnight bikepacking event, the Swift Campout.

Winner of the 2015 Bikepacking Awards ‘Best New Event’, the Swift Campout is powered by you; not only by riding your bike, but by each individual that books a campsite, and gets out there. But before the wheels in your brain start turning, check out how you can win a full bike camping setup and camping credit to book your site below!
