Grease Rag's Intermediate Bike Camping Trip
Minneapolis to William O'Brien State Park
This trip is intended for femme/trans/women (FTW) who have some experience bike camping and are comfortable riding 40 miles two days in a row. If you are looking for a more beginner friendly trip, save the date for our FTW Bike Camping Retreat, August 25-26.
What to expect?
Friendship and Fun!
We only have space for 12 people on this trip. We will do some icebreaker activities and have some games at camp. Let's all be open to the experience of meeting new friends!
Details about the trip
FTW-only! (If you are a cis-male who benefits from cis male privilege, please do not register for this trip.)
Reserve your spot
Sign up here until July 1: https://goo.gl/forms/ZH1cLm7XpwpuSfRr2
You MUST sign up to go- space is limited! We will send out an email on July 3 to coordinate food, etc. We're asking for a $7 contribution to cover the cost of the campsite and fire wood. We have scholarships available if that is a barrier for you. Your spot will be confirmed when I've received payment (cash, check, or Venmo) or request for scholarship.
Saturday, July 14, 12:30pm. Our planned roll out is 1p.
Meet at the Hub Bike Coop (3016 Minnehaha Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55406).
The ride will be on a combination of city streets, separated bike paths, and country roads. There are a few significant hills closer to camp. Expect about 39 miles at 10-15 miles per hour.
There will be a few planned stops along the way: Around mile 17, there is a water fountain and porta potties. At Pine Point Park, about 30 miles in, there are (gendered) bathrooms and a water fountain. The last stop will be Marine General Store, a place to get last minute snacks before heading into the park.
We will be collaborating on dinner and breakfast. There will be an email after registration is closed to coordinate the logistics. Please bring your own plate, bowl, napkin, fork, knife, spoon, mug, cup. We will not be providing these things unless you specifically reach out.
