I love that this thread has made it 2 pages and bringing the bike is still being considered.
I think it's up to you, but be prepared to walk the bike from the campground for a long time before the crowd is thin enough to actually ride the thing.
Also, when do you plan on going to the water? Being up and anywhere near functional usually takes me until 10. Then I make breakfast, drink and play random games or what have you until I go to the venue (usually around 2).
I dont know how good of a cyclist you are, but if you get as fucked up as I do every night your body will hate you when you have to ride that bike back up the hill and then party all day.
Unless you are super motivated people, the chances of you actually riding this bike more than a few hundred feet are pretty slim. There are just so many things you would rather be doing at Sasquatch; between the drinking, the bong hits, and the obligatory costume changes, the novelty will wear off fast, believe me.
It's true. Even at home the appeal of my friends saying "lets go ride bikes" dissolved at approximately the same time I discovered beer and the opposite sex.
As someone who regularly goes mountain biking this post offends me.
Every thread is every thread.
I was going to give an internet chest poop (I'll allow the filter for hilarity, and to make fun of people from Cleveland, Drew?) for the mountain biking comment, until I realized you are Canadian. Nothing wrong with that, but it means you will be riding a bike many many miles away from where I will be riding a bike.
I think you should go back to being the only Sasquatch blog fan. They clearly don't like you here.
if your friends went down to the water in previous years, why not just tag along with them when they go this year? Are you all bringing bikes? or are you going to be the only fuckass on a bike riding way ahead of everybody then sitting there waiting for them to catch up?
No. No. No. This is a fucking stupid idea. If you want to ride something around and be awesome, buy this
We planned on bringing bikes but if they are not allowed in the campground there is no use. At Coachella we had a midnight lighted bike ride through the camp and all you needed was some sort of light on your bike. There were bikes lit up with 100's of glow sticks and we just used a few strings of solar lights on ours...oops...looking out the window it appears one of the bikes is still sporting its solar lights:-)

Inthecolumbiagorge, they are allowed, but don't seem to be very practical. The terrain and sheer amount of people just don't seem to jive with bikes. And the walk to and from the venue is where much of the fun of the weekend resides.
