Inspired by the international summer-solstice bike-campout, also known as the Swift Campout, we thought it would be great to steal their idea and encourage cyclists to all go bike camping on the same night. Just this time on a night that is more suitable for us who happen live in the Southern Hemisphere, because who wants to go camping in the middle of winter?
All you need to do is, round up some friends and organise to go bike camping on Saturday the 20th of October.
Once you've got your group together and a camping spot planned please sign up for free and add your campout to our interactive map.
Alternatively you could look to join in with a group camping in your area.
We have booked a few sites at Miller’s Point campsite near Simons Town and anyone is welcome to join us, although spaces are limited, so if you'd like to join us get in quickly. You can find our event details here.
As you may know, very few things are better than bike camping with friends, except maybe if you also won a really cool prize!
So thanks to a few generous event partners we have some great giveaways and prizes up for grabs. Check out all the details here.

The cool prize Sponsors are: NODO Packs, Scuttle, Trail’s End, Finni, Unclipped Adventure and us Everyday Cycle Supply Co.
