This past weekend, my partner and I took 6 of our friends on what was (for 5 of the 6) their first bicycle camping trip. We went to Brownsville, our now go-to intro bike-camping destination. Let me tell you, the Brownsville campground (at their gorgeous, tricked-out city park) is a happening place. Lots of people, lots of camping, right by the river. And free fire-wood! And a lax camp-fire policy.
