Join us for a fun filled overnight bike camping trip at Kern River Campground May 5-6!

We will be heading out on our adventure from Beach Park at 2 pm on Saturday May 5th. The ride is 13 to 15 miles depending on the route we take. There will be opportunities for fun, friendships, river floating, bike rides, camping, and BBQ. We will leave the campground by 12 pm on Sunday May 6th.

Camping with us will require a $5 fee. The Kern River Campground charges for their sites, and we have a limited number of spaces open. Paying your camping fee will reserve your spot. You do have the option of joining us at the Kern River Campground by reserving your own site. If you want to join in on our food option we will be preparing snacks, dinner, and breakfast for $20. If you would like to ride with us and can’t take your gear on your bike, we can transport your gear for a $10 fee. Choose your options below and we will follow up with you for payment. Current Bike Bakersfield members will receive a discount on the listed prices.

Communal meals will be prepared by the group. Trust me, it will be scrumptious.
