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.

Minneapolis Bikers

Meet at 10:00 AM at the HUB Bike COOP

Depart at 10:30 AM from The HUB on Saturday. The Peace Coffee sag wagon will be on hand to carry camping gear for registered riders.

St. Paul Bikers

At 10:30, Saint Paul riders will meet at the parking lot just west of Cycles for Change.  The Summit sag wagon will pick up gear between 10:30-11, and riders should be ready to join the Mpls riders around 11AM.  The group will depart at approximately 11:15 AM when the Mpls bikers arrive and then proceed to the festival grounds.

Approximate parking lot address: 708 University Avenue, St. Paul, Minnesota


On Sunday, the sag wagons will depart by 10 AM. The Mpls sag wagon will drop off gear at The Hub, and St. Paul riders will rejoin the Summit sag wagon in the parking lot just west of Cycles for Change (same location at the beginning of the ride).

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 but bikers assume their own risk during this ride.
