Don't have one with tent and bike together, but here's our SD Velox 3 near Divide, MT and then again along Rock Creek near Clinton, MT.

The tent is a Sierra Design Clip Flashlight.

This is in Prescott, Ontario, on the Waterfront Trail. I was expecting to pay 30$+ at this RV park. Turned out they had a cyclist's special for 12$ and I had the best spot.



Just east of Sheldrake on the North Coast of the St-Lawrence river. Many nice camping spots there.



On Anticosti island:



On Route Verte #1 near Victoriaville, Quebec. I had camped there on my very first overnight trip.

I don't have my bike in the picture, but here's my ancient tent I got for free.

This was taken on a quick overnight bike-camping trip in southern Indiana.

My tent is one of these in thus photo from Cycle NC, with my bike leaning against the rail beside the river way in the background. The tent is a Kelty 2-man but I forget the model.

From my 2nd (ever) multi-day tour last year... This is in Spruce Run State Park in NJ.

The hammock and tarp have been upgraded, although this setup was actually totally great. ...No bike in the photo, but its a totally stock BD Windsor Tourist with a Jannd front rack. The hammock is a Grand Trunk Ultralight, tarp as you can see is yr standard 'blue beast' and home made bugnet.

More photos here...
https://jakerockmobileunit.blogspot.c...bike-trip.html

BTW... I LOVE this thread! All of your setups / landscapes are super inspiring and fun to check out! Many thanks to Aushiker for starting this.

Ran out of daylight on one of my tours last year. Ended up stealth camping in a graveyard in central Fl. Ironically the grave yard was named the "Pine Level Campground Cemetery"............Tent is a older model 2 person Marmot. Love everything with the tent except the color. Not good for stealth camping. Bike is a Nashbar touring frame I built up. It's everything I was looking for in a touring bike.

Jammed into a Tubus rack.



I wouldn't tour across the country with skis stuck out like that, but good for speeds up to nearly 40mph on the downhill (probably would be stable faster but didn't get going that fast) during a regional 5 day bike and ski tour.

Since I'm posting again, here's a more traditional tent shot,





although this is a very small packing and light Black Diamond Lighthouse tent. The fabric is Epic, a non coated, non waterproof single wall fabric that really performs like a champ in every condition, including near tornado like conditions with fearsome hail, rain, lightning and foul weather in the badlands of South Dakota.

I'm a total touring nooooob.... I've only taken 2 over night rides so far.. (so far!!).

My camp at Golds Head State Park in Keystone Heights Florida.

Tent is Sierra Designs Zeta 2 ... 2 person 3 season tent. I've only spent 2 nights in it so far... Both in nice weather high 40's one night and mid 50's the other. REALLY EASY to set up... which is good for me... Did I mention I'm a camping nooob also..

Bike is a 2006 Gary Fisher Tassajara Disc with lockout front fork. Got it off of Craigslist for $200 , just could not pass up the deal. Hardly ridden and stored for almost 4 years before I got it. Decided to convert it to a touring bike and try that.

Had fun... still planning a longer tour/ride for sometime**********?
