Back for it’s sixth year, Seattle based bike bag makers Swift Industries are hosting the 2020 Swift Campout. Unlike previous editions where the Swift Campout has been hosted on the summer solstice, this year due to C-19 precautions it’s been delayed to the autumn equinox, signifying the start of autumn.
Swift aim to get thousands of bike campers all over the world to share the same experience on one night, which is especially poignant at the moment as most are not able to physically meet up with friends. You can sign up on their website and upload your planned route, which they can add to their world map of bike campers!
So who will you choose to ride with, if anyone, and where will you head to welcome in the autumn? An extra hour in your cosy tent, hammock or bivvy bag can’t be a bad thing! If you’re into really cool designs and a souvenir from the ride, you can get some rad Swift Campout bottles, socks and caps either direct from Swift or from one of their distributors, which includes Pannier.cc in the UK. Don’t forget to follow #swiftcampout for inspiration from other riders all over the world.
