If you live in the Southern California area, consider joining me on March 10, 2018 for my first ever “Bikes & Burritos” Overnight Bike Tour in the Camarillo/Point Mugu area. We’ll be cycling from my parents’ home in Camarillo, California to the beach and then spending the night at Sycamore Canyon Campground on the shores of Point Mugu.

This is your opportunity to cycle with me, meet other Bicycle Touring Pro readers, and enjoy a scenic overnight bike tour along the coast of Southern California.

Here’s The Plan:

March 10, 2018 – 12:00 PM: We’ll meet in Camarillo, prepare our bicycles and then take off on a flat 20 mile bike ride from the farmlands of Camarillo to the scenic seascapes of Point Mugu.

Then we’ll make camp for the night in Sycamore Canyon Campground, which is situated just a short walk away from the Pacific Ocean. After showering and setting up camp, we’ll eat Mexican burritos from my favorite local restaurant (Chipotle) and tell stories around a campfire.

March 11, 2018: After a good night’s rest in our tents, we’ll pack up our bicycles, eat a quick breakfast, and then cycle 20 miles back to Camarillo.

    Hi Darren. This could be a really fun first-timer for my wife…. One concern – Rain! I don’t want it to be her first and last…. Any thoughts in the works for summer-based events, EXACTLY like this one? Thanks, Steve (PS – I am loving the Giant MTB!!)

      It’s California! It almost never rains. haha! I’m not too worried about it. I think it will be fine.

      I don’t have any other summertime meet-ups planned right now because I will be in Europe this summer. Have you and your wife considered joining me on either the bike tour in Portugal or Switzerland that I’m doing this summer:

      I’ll be back in the USA in late August and am hoping to do another mini bike tour/meetup in Colorado. But nothing planned for California right now.

    What a great overnight trip. My wife and I registered as soon as we saw your email. We are really looking forward to it. There is nothing like a bike tour and sharing stories with like minded cycle tourist.
