Event description

Description

Load your tent and sleeping bag onto your bike, meet new friends, and sit around the fire sipping something delicious with us as we celebrate autumn with an epic group bike camp-out!

Our first group camp-out in May was so wonderful that we had to plan another almost immediately. This time around, Freewheel Bike will be driving bags to the campsite — limit 1 bag per person — for those who'd rather not carry all their stuff by bike!

This'll be an incredible time. It's the perfect way to bid goodbye to summer and welcome autumn into our lives. Join us!

This camp-out is sponsored by Surly Brewing Company and Freewheel Bike.

EVENT DETAILS

On September 22, we'll meet up at the brewery at 11 a.m., for brunch and/or lunch together until 1 p.m., then head out on a group bike ride of about 25 miles (50 round trip).

Our route will include two stops to rest and regroup, and once we reach the campsite, we'll set up camp and hang out!

This family-friendly event will be ticketed, as our campsite is limited to 200 people. Your $10 ticket gets you access to our private campground, a professionally led, welcoming-paced group ride courtesy of the Joyful Riders Club, a selection of eats and drinks, a raffle ticket, and other surprises. There are always surprises.

On Sunday morning, you can either head back to Minneapolis–Saint Paul on your own, or ride back with the group — your choice! We all need to be out of the campsite by 12 p.m.

A FEW DISCLAIMERS & COMMENTS

  • You are responsible for your own dinner on the night we arrive; however, we will provide a boatload of drinks and snacks at camp, and we'll stop for food and drinks along the way. The La Croix was overflowing last trip.

  • This ride is self-supported, so you are responsible for bringing your own tools and fixing your own bike in case of mechanicals. However, we've enlisted Freewheel Bike to provide rolling support.

  • You will also be responsible for carrying and providing your own tent, sleeping bag, and other assorted camping necessities and sundries. Freewheel Bike is able to drive bags to the campsite for those who'd rather not carry all their stuff on bike. They will meet us at Surly.

  • Limit 1 bag in the truck per person.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Where is the campsite? It's in Carver Park Reserve in the Three Rivers Park district. We keep the exact location a secret so people don't show up to our party expecting free beer.

  • Do I need to provide my own dinner? Yes, but we'll have plenty of snacks at the campsite, and we'll provide two stop opportunities along the way to fill up our bellies.

  • Where are we stopping along the way? Pizza Luce in Hopkins and Maynards Restaurant in Excelsior. We'll spend 30–60 minutes at each rest stop.

  • What if I don't have a tent? We recommend buddying up with someone through our Facebook event! You could also rent your tent from a local shop.

  • Does our campsite have water on-site? Yup!

  • Is our campsite close to bathrooms? Yup!

  • Are there showers on-site? No, but there's a lake right nearby.
