Event Details


In October 2017, we were still reveling in the afterglow of the inaugural Swift Summit 200/100 just two months earlier. The stoke was high, but we were beginning to miss all of the new friends we made in the saddle, and the long and dark Northwest Winter loomed on the horizon. We needed something to lift our spirits just a bit and carry us into the new autumn, so we rented a group campsite, purchased a bunch of food, and invited everyone to come join us for a three-day celebration of golden leaves, community, and a proper symbolic closure for the epic cycling season we'd just experienced. 

Now we want to do it again, and you're invited.

Asked Questions


Will I Freeze Camping in Oregon in October?
If you're an Oregonian, it's a safe bet that you've probably been inspired by a crisp, fall morning, but perhaps you haven't slept outside in a tent when Jack Frost comes through.  With a well rated sleeping bag rated down to 30 degrees, you should be alright. We'll even teach you the old "boiled water in a Nalgene in the foot of your bag" trick. If you need a little more insulation to make it through, you're welcome to bring a sprinter van or trailer/RV. We can make it all work.

If camping isn't your jam, we offer the option to join us for just a home cooked breakfast and ride Saturday morning.  Lunch will be provided afterwards, and you're welcome to stick around throughout the afternoon for post-ride activities. A dinner add-on is also available for purchase if you want to stick around until evening. 

What are the Routes?
Participants have the option of a supported 100 mile, 50 mile, or 50k on Saturday. All routes offer aid station support with food and hydration. Click for link to routes below. Subject to change.

100 Mile

50 Mile


Sunday Social Ride

I've got a Family and Small Kids. Can they Join the Weekend Fun?
The Autumn Amble is family friendly (dogs included). For younger kids and family, and those new to cycling, the 50k route takes it light on the climbing but packs the same breathtaking scenery as the 100k route. For those extra young kids, the campground includes a large playground, basketball courts, and a quarter mile paved loop that is low traffic. Striders and training wheels encouraged, and reduced costs for those just looking to hang (kids nine and under are free).

What about Diet Restrictions? 
Our camp chefs are mindful of everyone's unique dietary needs, and will have choices available to meet the needs of practicing vegans, vegetarians, and those with gluten sensitivities.
