Most Raucous Bike Gathering? Meet the Florideah Swampfest

The Florideah Swampfest pits cyclists against some very tricky obstacles. Oh, and it also sometimes puts them in a swamp.

Held annually for a couple of days in spring, the Florideah Swampfest is just so Florida. It mixes bicycles, dirt jumps, crazy wooden ramps, swamps, rails, and what appears to be a very rowdy crowd.

The kicker? It’s dirt cheap. Just $35 gets you camping for 2 nights and entry to all the wild times your swamp-loving heart could desire.
