For riders who prefer to sleep indoors, a room block has been set aside at a lodging facility in each overnight town.
The facilities may be 1 to 4 miles from our camping spots. Riders will be responsible for getting themselves to and from lodging sites, meals and town activities. Luggage delivery is provided — but only to and from the BAM-designated facilities.
When making reservations at each lodging facility, be sure to ask for the Bicycling Around Minnesota/BAM block. Call the listed numbers to make reservations. The BAM room blocks and discounted rate are not available online.
Please book your room by no later than May 31. Note: BAM does not vet the lodging locations.
