Biking To the Event

Everything you need to know when travelling to the festival on bicycle

In order to receive the biker discount, these tickets must be purchased in advance.  We typically sell 200+ biker discount tickets to attendees who, in advance, agree to bike from the Twin Cities to the festival.  That’s about 80 miles round trip.  Since 2009, about 50% of our attendees have biked to the festival. We ask that you would help us continue that tradition.  If you arrive at the event by bike, but didn’t purchase a ticket in advance, you’ll need to pay full ticket price.

During the Brown Paper Ticket checkout process, you will be asked to specify whether you are departing from The Hub or Cycles for Change.  This allows us to prepare the sag wagons accordingly.

The Hub

Minneapolis Bikers

9:30 AM at the HUB Bike COOP

3020 Minnehaha Ave South
Minneapolis, MN 55406

Depart at 10AM on Saturday. The Peace Coffee sag wagon will be on hand to carry camping gear for registered riders.

Cycles For Change

St. Paul Bikers

10 AM at Cycles For Change

712 University Avenue
St. Paul, MN 55104

Depart at approximately 10:30 AM when the Mpls bikers arrive. Summit will be on hand to transport camping gear for St. Paul bikers.

RETURNING FROM THE FESTIVAL:

On Sunday, both sag wagons will depart at 9 AM. The sag wagon will drop off gear at the same departure point bikers left from on Saturday.

Please note:

Bikers who arrive to the festival gate who have not pre-registered for the ride in advance cannot be granted reduced admission. Children 12 and under are free.

If, after paying the biker pre-registration, you decide to drive from Mpls/St. Paul to the event, just pay the remaining amount. You still receive the online admission since you pre-registered.

After you’ve submitted your registry payment, you’ll be signed up for the ride. We’ll contact you before the event to confirm ride status and provide any last minute information.

Volunteer ride stewards with basic bike repair supplies will accompany the riders.
