Access Hopkins Bike Camping Trip!

Event Details:
– Date: Sat. May 18th – Sun. May 19th
– Time: Meet up 10am – introductions and rollout at 10:30am
– Location: Starting Point – Lunds & Byerly’s Hwy 7 This is a casual introduction/refresh to bike camping. We will meet at 11400 Hwy 7 (Lunds & Byerly’s parking lot) at 10AM to make introductions and have a quick gear check before orlling out at 10:30AM at a social/leisurely pace. Bring your questions!
The route is 95% crushed limestone bike trails and 5% paved trails in Carver itself (nearly any bicycle will be adequate) and we will ride at a social/leisurely pace. That puts us in Excelsior by 11:00am for coffee/lunch, arriving in camp a little after noon. Plenty of time for setting up camp and optional mountain biking at Monarch MTB trails adjacent to the campground so ride your mountain bike if you wish to join that part of the adventure.
We DO have a SAG vehicle if you’d prefer not to carry your gear on your bike.
We are planning to bring food to share and ask folks to bring some extras to share.
