SU Bike Camp is a week-long adventure on a bike for young people in years 9 to 12 at school in New South Wales, Australia. (Are you too young for Bike Camp? Check out Junior Bike Camp for kids in years 7 & 8 at school) It's for guys and girls who like cycling, camping, and meeting others from around NSW. If you are looking for a school holiday cycling and camping activity, Bike Camp could be the adventure for you!
Bike Camp is not a cycling race, it's just a good reason to dust off your mountain bike and have time away that you'll never forget, cycling, camping in country towns and making new friends. Bike Camp has been cycling the roads of New South Wales for over 30 years, covering some of the best bike rides in the state.

Peter and Jodie Oste
Pete and Jodie have been directing Bike Camp since 2010 and started Junior Bike Camp in 2014.
Jodie started out as a camper in Bike Camp back when bikes were made from steel and helmets were optional! She loved it so much she never left! Pete often jokes that he married into Bike Camp but has developed a real passion for camp and the kids that come each year.
Pete and Jodie live in Molong, in Central Western NSW, and are involved in various Children and Youth Ministries at Molong Baptist Church.
They have a deep love for Jesus, the great outdoors and seeing young lives changed by the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
