Chapter 2 - Dirt • Pavement • Paddle

Swamp Mountain Bike Club welcomes you to CroomFest 2023

Online Registration is Now Closed! 

Pavement Ride Registration is still available on the day of the event.

35/50 on Dirt 

Dirt Event Registration is Now Closed!

Starts from Silver Lake Campgrounds


In partnership with our Northern Volunteers, The Brooksville Mafia, we challenge
you to a 35 or 50 mile endurance ride through Croom’s mountain bike trails. This is an
endurance challenge, not a race, unless you want to see how fast you can get to the
finish line. Along your route SAG stops will be available for rehydrating and snacks. 

Upon your return to the campgrounds, enjoy live music, food truck options and beverages while visiting with friends. If you still have energy, visit the Vendor Village, play a
game or two or bring a chair and relax.
Registration check- in for this event is in the campgrounds.

35/50 on Pavement


Starts from Silver Lake Campgrounds 


If pavement is your thing, pedal the Good Neighbor paved trail from Silver Lake Campgrounds. Bike Florida will lead a 35- and 50-mile tour along the Good Neighbor Trail and the Withlacoochee Trail. You have the option to tailor your own ride at any time. Full SAG support will be offered with rest stops along the way to refill your water, grab a snack and catch your breath. Rides kick off at 8:30 a.m. at the Good Neighbor Trail, near the Silver Lake Campground. Full routes will be published four to six weeks before the event. Come spend the day in nature and beauty! Beverages, food truck options, music and friends await your return.

Water more your thing?

Paddle and Play is waiting for  you!


Starts from Silver Lake Campgrounds 


  1. Paddle with our wilderness guides, Brian Boyle, and YouTube guru, Clint Gibbs. Enjoy a leisurely 3 hour float and scenic paddle. Most likely wont see any hippopotamus or zebras but it is almost certain you will see a turtle or two. Watch out for Clint, you may be a star in his next YouTube video. Registration is limited to keep the group cozy.

  2. Smaller, guided rides on the pavement or in the dirt will be available.

  3. If your style is jumping, Adrenaline Bikes has your fix with a jump-ramp track that has a soft landing. Session as much as you would like.

  4. Stroll the vendor village, learn about the newest bike geometry, get a massage or learn about your future if you are so inclined. Fees for massages and psychic readings are extra.

  5. Clinics and classes: Sharpen your skills on the skills course. Sign up for a yoga class.

  6. Games, movies, and more...


What's included?  Carte Blanche, your choice of any or all activities above. The paddle is scheduled for Sunday. Don’t want to bring your kayak? No problem! Rentals are available, but you need to let us know in advance. Rental fees are not included.
