Here we go again!

Next sub 24: Friday 2nd September

Last time we had 8 riders. Let's beat our record! I can see already 5 people have voted that they are coming on the poll, which is promising.

So if you've never been with us, here's the gist: Bring yourself and your bicycle to the Shell station in Bemböle on Friday 2nd September at 17:30. If that's too early for you, just contact us (in the comments section, or on Twitter, or on Facebook, so no excuse!) and we'll make sure we wait for you.

What you need:
  • A tent
  • Sleeping bag and mat
  • Food to grill
  • Drinks (alcoholic or not, that's up to you)
  • A willingness to share your food, drinks and life story
  • Sub24 tradition encourages you to bring one "luxury item" to share. A bottle of something special, a local delicacy (the stranger, the better), or anything that you'd not usually expect to find on a camping trip.
And here's what you don't need: Coffee pot and coffee (and milk and sugar), loaf of bread and some jam, first aid kit, a lock for all bikes, matches and a night cap for eveyone...

Further packing tips and ideas can be found on this blog post.

This time we've decided to leave our destination open. This way it can be discussed with all participants at the Shell station on the day. We can go as far as people want, but also want to encourage anyone to come so if you're feeling a little nervous, we can easily redirect to a closer camping spot. Ideas so far: Nuuksio, Kaitalampi (via Velskolantie) or Pirttimäki (maybe this type we can actually end up on the lake we were aiming for last time!).

So tell your friends, get yourself motivated, confirm your presence in the poll (on the right-hand side of this blog) and see you in a week or so!
