Be a part of thousands across the globe connected through the joy of bike travel! Adventure Cycling Bike Travel Weekend is a great opportunity to inspire, connect, and empower bike travelers everywhere -- especially for their first overnights or weekend trips. Rides can take place at any time over Bike Travel Weekend, and all ride lengths are welcome on June 3 - 5, 2022.

Here is what I am doing,

I am going to bike from Gulfport Casino parking area to Starkey Park. Camp overnight and bike back the next day.

You can eat dinner with campfire or go to Starkey market on a short bike adventure which is a delight. https://starkeymarket.com/

You can start with me at Gulfport, or perhaps Publix in Dunedin.

I reserved Group Tent Campsite (B) at Starkey. It cost me $41, so feel free to chip in.

Check in time:  2:00 - 5:00 pm; Check out at 10:00 am

The primitive group camp site is along the hiking trails and has picnic table, water spigot, grills and one large fire pit. No electric is available.  Restrooms have electric and are located in the tent camping area. This group site can accommodate up to 40 campers.

No domestic animals allowed in camping area.

Generators and RV's are prohibited.  There will be no refunds.  

Check in time:  2:00 – 5:00 pm; Check out at 10:00 am

I have not camped there so we will learn what camping is like there together.
