October Bike Camping Trip with Angry Catfish Bikes in Lanesboro, MN
October 21 - October 23Free
Date: October 21 -23
Start Time: 9:30 AM meetup, 10:00 depart
Meet Up Spot: Lanesboro, MN (specific location will be emailed to participants)
Distance & description: We will do a loop that includes camping at Beaver Creek Valley State Park the first night and Great River Bluffs State Park the second night, before returning to Lanesboro. 140 miles.
Route: October Gravel
Description: Join the ACF crew for a fun weekend of bikecamping in October! 40-50 miles per day, on a mixture of pavement and some of the best gravel in the state, with a fair amount of climbing — a few thousand per day. The trip will be no drop, and a steady but touring pace — 8 – 12 mph, with two pace groups — one a little slower, one a little faster. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to come, regardless of experience level! The group will be stopping and regrouping throughout the ride, and with food and drink and resting stops throughout the weekend. Riders should be prepared to pack everything they need for the weekend — and are welcome to ask questions ahead of time on how to prep!
About Angry Catfish: Angry Catfish was born out of the vibrant Minneapolis bicycle culture that surrounds us on the streets, dirt, gravel, and snow. We believe that bikes are an amazing form of transportation, recreation and fitness (and when you add fantasic coffee, all the better). Together, we aim to inspire people to take their next two wheel adventure. Our team, each in our own way, is involved in local advocacy to ensure that the new and existing cyclists alike can continue to enjoy the beauty of riding a bike.
