BIKE TRIP PLANNING
 
Use this handy planning sheet to track your trip.
 

Select your starting point campground. 

You will stay overnight at your starting point campground either the first or last night of your trip or both.  This will be the campground that picks up your gear on the last riding day of the trip. 

Each day the next campground you are staying at will transport your gear from the previous nights stay to the next campground while you ride.  Have your gear packed and ready to go by the predetermined pickup time you agreed upon.

Each campground sets is own rates for gear transportation based on the distance and number of trips required to transport your gear.  You will arrange a pick up time in advance for gear to be picked up by the next campground you are staying at.

Reservations & Cancellations:
Some campgrounds may require a two night stay on weekends (Friday-Saturday) especially during the summer peak season.  Gear transportation arrangements require advance notice and a specific pickup time.  Each campground has it’s own cancellation policy for campsites.

GEAR TRANSPORT

The destination campground will transport only gear such as tents, sleeping bags, pillows, sleeping pads, backpacks, duffle bags, coolers, cooking gear, small portable camp stoves (no large gas grills),  folding camp chairs, and tool bags.  No camping trailers or utility trailers.  Travel light there’s always more at the store if you forgot something.  Transport of pets not available.

SAFETY & EDUCATION

SHARE THE ROAD RESPECTFULLY !!

Wisconsin Department of Transportation Biking information

Rules for riding bicycles on the road

Bicycle crash prevention and protection

Bicycle safety education

Having fun and a great trip starts with safety. Bikes are considered vehicles in Wisconsin and must abide by the rules of the road.  

Safety classes are available at the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin

Communication is key to keeping everyone safe. 

Call out "Car front!" or "Car behind!

Call out "On your left" when you pass a biker.  Don't pass too 

      close - give them plenty of space.  Never pass on the right.

When drafting behind another rider be sure to announce that you

       are there.

Call out your maneuvering intentions  "Stopping" "Turning right" 

       "Turning left".  Use your hand signals.

Ride no more than two abreast except when passing. 

Riding single file is best.

Use caution when approaching the top of a hill.

 

WEATHER

Biking and camping are outdoor experiences so the weather can affect your level of fun.  There is of course no such thing as bad weather, however there is such a thing as insufficient planning, inappropriate clothing and gear.  Bring the right clothing and gear and weather doesn’t matter.  If you cancelled everything you ever wanted to do because of the weather you’d never leave your house.

WHAT TO PACK

 
Campground transport services will transport only gear such as tents, sleeping bags, pillows, sleeping pads, backpacks, duffle bags, coolers, cooking gear, small portable camp stoves (no large gas grills),  folding camp chairs, and tool bags.  No camping trailers or utility trailers.  No pets.  See sample GEAR CHECKLIST

WHAT IF'S?

Before you start your trip – give your bike a good mechanical inspection before you leave.  Lubricate as recommended by the manufacturer. Check all fasteners, nuts & bolts.

Spare Tubes: Be sure you have spare tire tubes (one for each size tire of all the bikes on the trip).  Make sure you have the necessary tools to change a tire and that at least one person on the trip knows how to change a tire.

Chain Tool: We highly recommend that you know how to fix a broken chain and perform basic bicycle repairs before embarking on your trip or bring with someone who has these skills.  You may not be so lucky as to have the bike repair angel drop down from the heavens and save you as she did for a group of city boys back in 2002 on the CAMBA trails near Cable, WI.

Stranded:  Campground transport vehicles are intended for transport of gear only at pre-planned times.  If you are stranded the destination campground can be contacted via phone, however, they may not have someone available at the drop of a hat to come to your rescue.  One cell phone should be carried on the trip.
