What the heck is a S24O?
The Sub-24-Overnight (S24O) is a sub-24 hour bikepacking adventure in your own back yard, sort of. Like car camping, but better because it’s with bikes.
The S24O is for weekend warriors who don’t want to spend the weekend weeding, for families who want to get away without spending a fortune and for folks who just don’t have time for a vacation, but love biking.
How To S24O like a Pro:
A little online searching on hikes and campgrounds in your area and you’re likely to find a cornucopia of S24O possibilities. When paired with a train or ferry ride from a city center you can really get away from it all!
Keep it lightweight, keep it simple, keep it local. The best thing you can do on an S24O is to not sweat the details. If you forget something or over pack a little, it’s ok because it’s just 24 hours. If you want a pillow, a hammock or the kid’s water toys, bring em.
