Swift Campout is the annual, global call to go bike-camping to celebrate the summer solstice. For the tenth year in a row, adventurers will pack camp gear on their bicycles and head out on June 22nd and 23rd, 2024 to kick off summer with a bike-overnight. Swift Campout is an ode to spending the longest day in the saddle and the shortest night under the stars. It is a celebration of the stellar community that rallies to share this stoke. To capture the magic of the event, we’ve called on Navigators around the world to guide their communities on a Swift Campout adventure.

We’re pleased to introduce you to Campfire Cycling.


Campfire Cycling is your bikepacking outfitter based in Sunny Tucson Arizona!

What does Swift Campout mean to Campfire Cycling? Swift Campout is about getting some rad folks together, riding bikes and celebrating summer solstice! (as well as some rad bags ;))
