The Gravel Pizza Overnighter is a community bikepacking event tucked right where you'd expect it halfway between the woods, farm country, and the middle of nowhere, Wisconsin. Here we bring you to Part 3 of a series of getting to know the experience at a closer level.

Between Forest & Farmland is Wedges Creek
Wedges Creek turns 5 this year. I discovered it for the first time over national Bike Travel Weekend in June when my family went out there for a bike camping (and car, too) trip.
As soon as I rolled up, I thought it'd be a heavenly place for a bikepacking gathering.
From the pine-y and peaceful hiding place to the really nice shower house and indoor seating in case of rain, I couldn't wait to get home and invite everyone from The Nxrth to join me and my family out here.
A few weeks ago, some friends and I pre-rode to route to grab some photos, sample the pizza (again), and make sure everything was ready to share.
Here are a few more photos; can't wait to see you all in less than 2 weeks!
46 Miles of Gravel & Pizza
Day 1 isn't too long or too short. It's just right for riding with friends, setting up camp, and then grabbing a drink and pizza.
Set up your tent, take a hot shower, and grab your free welcome drink in the pavilion. There will be live music, blazing pizza ovens, and campfires to gather around as the fall evening sets in.
