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 Goldfinch Cyclery!

Goldfinch is a worker-owned bicycle shop flyin’ in the ❤ of Cedar Rapids, Iowa ✌This is our 9th year hosting the solstice bike campin’ jam and we couldn’t be more pumped to ride bikes, sleep outside, and celebrate the summer solstice with you all. With two different routes to plug into, we hope to see even more folks out experiencing bike-campin’ for the very first time.
