    Join us and fellow bicycle adventurers on a weekend bikecamping in the foothills south of Calgary.

    The Millarville Racetrack/Market/Campground has potable water, heated washrooms, and showers.

    The Millarville Farmers Market is on the Saturday 9am - 2pm.

    Leighton Art Centre is a nice bike ride away, so is Granary Road.

    Eau Claire Distillery is in Turner Valley and there is a separate bike path linking Turner Valley to Black Diamond - with Black Diamond being 14kms from the campsite.

    BONUS: We'll have a vehicle + small trailer available to transport all/some/none of your camping gear/beer/food and there is room in the campground for families (who do not want to bike) of the bikecampers to drive down and enjoy the weekend with us.

    This event will run no matter the weather - prepare accordingly.

    If you want us to transport your gear, drop it off at the shop before 4:30pm on Friday the 21st and make sure it is in a waterproof container.

    There will be a group leaving BikeBike in Inglewood at 5pm on Friday but feel free to leave earlier in the day if you like. The camp spots will be available anytime after 3pm Friday.

    YOU MUST BE SELF-SUPPORTED! There is no sag wagon to save you.
