Fall Bike Camping


Bike camping with Cycleast is BACK and we've got so many campsites booked, it's gonna blow your mind. We're doing things a little differently this go-around, so please read all of the information below carefully.

Our fall bike camping series kicks off with a visit to one of our favorite state parks in Texas. Pedernales Falls State Park us just outside of Johnson City. This ride is about 40 miles of rolling hills through some of the most beautiful parts of the hill country.

Happy Horse Hotel is an adorable private campground between Austin and Bastrop. The green pastures, outdoor showers, and live music guarantee good memories. The All-City Tiny Hat Takeover Campout at Happy Horse Hotel is going to be a party that you don't want to miss! On Friday, there will be an early roll out during the day for those able to take time off work and there will be a 6pm after work roll out. Saturday morning we will ride from Happy Horse Hotel to the Webberville Cyclocross race and then back to Austin.

Pedernales Falls State Park and Happy Horse Hotel: Meet at Cycleast on your Saturday morning(s) of choice, time specified for each event. Campers will roll out of town together, led by an employee of Cycleast. Routes will be distributed prior to the day of departure.

McKinney Falls State Park: Meet at Cycleast at 7:30pm on your Friday night(s) of choice. Campers will roll out of town together to McKinney, led by an employee of Cycleast. The route we take is a chill 12-mile paved ride and as we will be riding in the dark, lights and helmets are mandatory. 

  • In order to RSVP, please go to our online store and purchase a "ticket" for each camping weekend you would like to attend. Spots are limited and will sell out quickly.
  • Tickets are $10 and cover campsite reservation fees.
  • Lights and helmets are required.
  • All bike camping rides are strictly no-drop.

Tiny Hat Takeover


Join All-City and Cycleast for a Friday night bike campout at Happy Horse Hotel in Cedar Creek, Texas.

Join us Friday November 17th for a 35 mile ride to Happy Horse Hotel. The main group will leave at 3pm but there will be a smaller group leaving at 6pm for those that can't get out of work early. Please bring your lights even if you roll with us at 3. We don't want to get caught in the dark. 

Camping is completely self supported, so bring all the gear you need for a night outside. Some snacks will be provided, but plan on bringing your own dinner and breakfast. There will be grilling at night and plenty of stoves to make hot water in the morning.

On Saturday there will be several different return trip options. Blake will be heading back to the shop after breakfast, and there will also be groups heading to the Cross Race in Webberville to continue the party. If you want to toss your bags off and jump in a race, you are more than welcome.

If you have questions shoot an email to russell@cycleast.com or call the shop.

  • Bring lights!
  • This ride will be no-drop
  • There are plenty of trees for hammocks
  • Last minute resupplies possible at the gas station two miles from HH (bringing food from Austin is recommended)
