Where to Stay During the Bike Festival

There are a number of options available for you to choose from, including tent camping at Shelburne Middle School, sleeping on school’s gymnasium floor (both options come with access to school restrooms and showers), as well as local motels, hotels and bed & breakfasts (some offering special Bike Festival rates). Whatever option you choose, we hope you have a restful stay with us in the Queen City!


Under the stars or next to the bleachers, it’s the cheapest option in town.

Tent camping: $10 fee (per tent) covers two nights. Access to school restrooms and showers.

Gym camping: $10 fee (per person) covers two nights sleeping on the gym floor. Bring your own sleeping bag or bedroll. Access to school restrooms and showers.

Limited breakfast options are available for purchase Saturday morning from school clubs on site, or get up early and head to a local restaurant before your ride begins.

Sign up for these camping options through our registration page.
