It looks like the annual Swift Industries solstice overnighter is shaping up to be pretty big! For the fifth year in a row thousands of adventurous spirits will load camping gear on their bikes for a weekend adventure. One of the longest days of the year for folks in the Northern Hemisphere means more time for riding, swimming, fishing, or whatever other fun activities you want to weave into your solstice overnight trip.
The Swift Campout global map is already filling up with great trips, so register today to host your own campout or join someone else’s. No matter where you end up on June 22nd, you’ll automatically be entered to win one of several great prizes from Swift Industries, plus a grand prize from their sponsors. We don’t want to give it all away… but we hear a guided bikepacking trip from Swift’s new sister company, Swift Adventure Co., a new bike, and all of the gear to get you rolling will be up for grabs.
Head over to SwiftCampout.com to register today!
