Bike Overnight Examples

A bike overnight is a short getaway by bike, involving at least one night away from home. That's it. Beyond that, a bike overnight is what you want it to be.

Bike overnights can be fancy

Ann met her friends at a historic hotel near Des Moines, IA and spent two great days riding Iowa's amazing trail system.0
And Rick flew his bike in his airplane to Thermopolis, WY, spent a day riding in Wind River Canyon, then flew himself home after dinner at a brewery and a night in a hotel.

They can be hardcore

Jon and Chris pedaled a Forest Service road until the snow was too deep. The next morning, they climbed and skied Hollowtop Mountain in Montana.

They can be relaxing

Kurt and Jodi beat the Front Range traffic in Colorado by driving to the top of Cameron Pass and starting an overnight trip that visited part of Adventure Cycling's TransAmerica Trail in Colorado's North Park.

They can be simple

And they can include the whole family
