Three-Day Bikepacking Loop to Conconully

Some bikepacking experience recommended, June 28-30, 2024 - Winthrop, WA

Supported by Bikepacking Roots and Cascade Endurance

Take your bikepacking skills to the next level with a three day, two night bikepacking loop out to Conconully and back! This trip will be the final ride of our spring bikepacking series and offers a chance to test your skills on a longer route. This is an intermediate route with 10,000ft of climbing over nearly 90 miles, and some sections of rougher gravel roads. We’ll spend the first night in historic Conconully, where we can snag treats, resupply items, and perhaps even a burger. Day two will find us winding our way back up into the mountains before finding a camp at Tiffany Springs. The final day will be spent zooming back down toward Winthrop. More details and registration coming soon!
