Group Ride Details


Backyard Bikepack Event

May 4, 2024
Overnight to May 5, 2024
Denver to Chatfeld State Park

In collaboration with the Galpackas and Treehouse Cyclery, we are hosting a two-day/one-night "Backyard Bikepack" event to prove that some of the best adventures are right out your front door.

Registered riders will bikepack to Chatfield State Park, where we will have a group campsite reservation and campfire presentations/events.

Join us as we spend a night under the stars and share bikepacking related tips, trips, and stories with our community. If you’re new to bike camping/packing/touring then this is a great way to test things out and see if the bikepack life is for you!

PLEASE NOTE: This is a SELF-SUPPORTED event, meaning you will need to provide your own bike, gear, food, and camping/cooking supplies.*
*One packet of instant coffee will be provided and was donated from Denver' s
Huckleberry Coffee Roasters, so there is one less thing for you to bring!

There will be multiple ride options to Chatfield starting at various locations in the metro area.
Start locations include:

  • Treehouse Cyclery (approx 25mi one way) -- ROUTE
  • Discovery Park in Golden (approx 25mi one way) -- ROUTE
  • Bear Creek Lake Park in Morrison (approx 25mi one way) -- ROUTE
  • Downtown Littleton (approx 15mi one way) -- ROUTE

We highly recommend either riding from your home or using public transportation to get to the meet up locations.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. (Cost helps cover campsite fees and proceeds will benefit Treehouse programming and the Galpackas Scholarship Fund.)
