evo Bicycle Camping Trip

Join evo and Swift Industries for an overnight bike camping trip to the Kitsap Peninsula.

Come ride thirty three miles with us to Kitsap Memorial State Park on the beautiful Hood Canal. Experience the freedom of carrying your own gear, explore along the way, and camp for the night on the water. Join evo, Traitor Cycles, and Swift Industries for an overnight bike adventure.

"Some of the Northwest's most gorgeous camp destinations are a day's bike ride from Seattle."

Packing up camp gear and loading it onto our bikes is one of our favorite ways to adventure. There's nothing better than slowing down to discover breweries, bakeries, and gorgeous roads.

We'll meet at the evo store and start with packing tips and cycling safety. The adventure begins along the interurban trail to the ferry landing. We're excited to show you Bainbridge Island's best cycling roads and our favorite views of Seattle. On the way, we'll stop in for a pint at Bainbridge Brewing Company, and stock up on groceries in Poulsbo at Central Market for the perfect camp meal. Day 2 we'll head back through charming Port Gamble and loop back to Bainbridge Island via Suquamish.

The group will be led by the designers and adventurer team at Swift Industries. With over a decade of bicycle touring experience, they'll be ready to help with packing tips, roadside mechanical issues, and camping skills. They have put together a queue list for you, and nailed down all of the logistics to make sure this overnight adventure gets you hooked.
