This scenic bikepacking trip from Mesick, Michigan to Frankfort, Michigan and back, will be led by Jill Martindale who will provide tips and tricks she's learned to make this bikepacking experience - whether your first or one of many - the most fun it can be. Your guides, two nights campsite reservations and all meals included. We'll meet at our campsite in Mesick on Friday night for a night of car camping and fun (Details of Friday location to come soon.). On Saturday, we'll take off for a casually paced 30-mile ride along dirt two tracks and rail trail along Crystal Lake to Franfort. We may even stop for a cool swim in the lake or for an ice cream in Thomsonville. Once there we'll refuel with a campfire dinner (included), bonfire, and more shenanigans. Sunday we'll wake up, eat a hearty breakfast and repack the bikes and head back to our cars in Mesick.
Nervous? It's all good... We'll have a clinic before the trip to talk gear, how to pack, and what to expect. Date and time to be determined. Information will be emailed to you regarding the time and place of the clinic if you would like to join us.
