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.

Say howdy to Klink Cycles:

We are a bike shop in Eugene Oregon specializing in commuter and adventure bikes. As a shop we are known for our casual paced social rides and there’s nothing we love more than bikepacking in our own time, so this year we’re bringing them together for Swift Campout!

For us, Swift Campout is about sharing the joy of bikepacking with a group! We hope to see old friends alongside first timers in an inclusive and fun environment.
