Ottawa Bike and Trail will be a host shop for Pack Palooza on October 8 and 9, 2022. Pack Palooza is a self-supported, low-key, bikepacking event organized by our good friends at Base Camp Flint Hills.
We'll be riding the Flint Hills Trail from Ottawa to Basecamp Flint Hills in Allen Kansas (53 miles) on Saturday, October 8. We'll camp overnight at Basecamp and return to Ottawa on Sunday morning.
Anyone is welcome to join the group. Riders must be entirely self-supported and will carry all of their own gear and food on their bike. It's a great opportunity to test out your gear and learn from fellow bike packers.
If you are interested you must register for the Pack-Palooza event here. The cost for the event is $10.
If you will be joining our group for the ride PLEASE RSVP here.
