Join National Bike Travel Weekend!

Join us and the staff of the Carrboro Clean Machine for a fun family campout! We'll start with a bike ride of about 6 miles from The Clean Machine store (104 W Main St, Carrboro) and end at our destination of the Pickoretum (2131 Marions Ford Road, Chapel Hill), a beautiful 220 acre property with the most diverse Arboretum in North Carolina, over 1 mile of trails, and some great campgrounds. 

Once at the Pickoretum, we'll provide everyone with meat, vegetables, and seasonings for a delicious fire-roasted foil dinner. In the morning before we head back to town we’ll enjoy a breakfast of fruit, granola, and yogurt.

You can rent tents, sleeping bags, and comfort pads from us, or bring your own. If you're bringing your own, please drop off supplies at The Clean Machine on Saturday, June 4, before 4pm, and it will all be shuttled over to the Pickoretum. Join us!
