The Drifty is an 8-day, unscripted adventure that takes place in the beautiful Driftless Region of Southern Wisconsin.
Live music at the start and finish, camaraderie, camping, bikepacking… it’s the greatest adventure of your life.
Where’s the fun in being told exactly what to do!? We’ve arranged the hard stuff & coordinated some fun stuff, the rest is up to you. Map out a route or wing it. We don’t care.

Bike Rentals: While the Drifty is a bring-your-own-bike event, we have a partnership with a great bike shop for rentals (both standard bike or eBike). You can reserve a rental here. Lost will manage the pick up and drop off of your rental bike.

“An incredible trip where you’ll learn more about yourself than you anticipate. | You’re never technically far from civilization but it feels like you’re in your own private nature preserve. | The perfect combination of relaxation and exertion.”
– Erik, 3rd Edition
“My friends called me crazy and then they wished they would have signed up.”
– Sara, 5th Edition
“Too many crazy stories to count. We spent one night on a hippie commune and partied til 3:00am with them. Another day we biked up to a diary farm to try fresh cow milk and got a private tour, A LOT of fresh milk & ended the night at the farmer’s cousin’s bar. It was utterly ridiculous.”
– Nick, 3rd Edition
The Driftless 250 is what I imagine going through the laundry is like. You get kind of dirty, then get sort of wet, then you kind of get the shit kicked out of you for a little bit but at the end you have this really warm and fuzzy feeling and you want to do it again.
– Walker, 1st Edition
“The Drifty 250 is an opportunity to live life at a different pace. How fast or slow you want that to be is up to you, but there will be boats, bikes, beer, and bald eagles.”
– Nate, 5th Edition
“This event taught me its okay to rely on the kindness of strangers (in fact, it might be better to embrace it).”
– Brennan, 6th Edition
“It is a week to completely unplug and to be in nature while testing how “outdoorsy” you really are. It is the perfect trip if you’re ready to do something a little more intense than tent camping at a camp site but are not ready to commit fully to Bear Grylls.”
– Blake, 5th Edition
