Northern Minnesota here we come! BAM 2017 registration opens on February 1, 2017, at 7:00 PM CST. We’ll start in Walker with overnights in Bemidji, Park Rapids, and Staples.
All four days (August 24 – 27) will be filled with beautiful scenery, fun highlighted stops and an optional Century on Day 2.
And, this year we’re adding a vegan/animal-free meal option for $15!
Since 2006, Bicycling Around Minnesota (BAM) has been offering a four-day bicycle ride covering 65 to 75 miles per day, with overnight stays in four host cities. Usually held in August, this ride is aimed at moderate to experienced cyclists.
BAM riders enjoy rolling over paved, low-traffic roads and bikeways to take in the beauty that abounds in this ‘home of 10,000 lakes.’ Each year the route moves to a different region of Minnesota to promote the wonderful communities here.
Overnight accommodations include camping, which most riders prefer, as well as limited hotel options. BAM is a fully-supported ride with all meals included and a shower truck with private shower stalls and plenty of warm water every evening. Cost per rider is $325.
BAM’s goals as a nonprofit are to promote Share the Road, bicycle safety, fitness, state tourism and the Scenic Bikeways System in Minnesota, and bicycling as a transportation mode.
Join us as we cycle into another beautiful wonderful area of Minnesota this August! You won’t be disappointed.
