Remember Bikeout, the sweet biking/camping/farm-to-table-eating excursion that debuted last year? Well, as a refresher, last year, the Philly-based “bike camping adventure” took 100 bike riders on a 32.5-mile ride along the SRT, from the Art Museum to the small farm Sankanac at CampHill Village Kimberton Hills, outside of Phoenixville, for a night of camping, farm-to-table food, live music, local beer, and more. Chances are, you weren’t there though: The 100 tickets for the event sold out the day they opened registration.

Womp, womp.

But good news: They’ve just announced the date for the 2017 event, which will take folks back to Sankanac at CampHill Village Kimberton Hills. And get this: As they say in their date announcement on the Bikeout website, “ … we’re going to double the number of riders to support the excitement we saw last year.” Woop, woop!

The dates for the 2017 event are Saturday, September 9th to Sunday, September 10th, with tickets going on sale Wednesday, July 12th. Details for the event are sparse, but the organizers tell us they should have all the programming squared away a week or two before tickets go on sale.

So set an alert in your Google calendar for July 12th and stay tuned for more event details! (Psst: The organizers of Bikeout also note that they’re looking to host small groups of cyclists — as in five to 20 riders — for overnight tours exploring the Philly area this summer. If you’re into that idea, they’re looking for feedback here.)
