About BAM

BAM is a non-profit organization with a mission to promote bicycle safety, Minnesota’s bike route network, fitness, tourism and bicycling as transportation. BAM has offered its 4-day bicycle tours since 2006. BAM has partnered with BikeMN to help us meet our mission and to support registration and planning the ride. Freewheel Bike is another one of our sponsors providing mechanical support on the ride.

Pork Belly Ventures LLC will offer our Tent service and PHAT trailers for 4 nights on Bicycling Around Minnesota!


Take the labor out of your cycling vacation.  For only $295, we will put your name on a 63 sq ft rental tent, complete with ground cloth and rain fly.  The PBV crew does all the labor of set-up, take-down, and moving of bags (two bags per person) to and from the tent each day.  Each morning, you pack up your bags and leave them inside your tent.  When you ride into our next campsite, you'll find your bags inside your tent.  We can place friends' rental tents next to each other, no problem.  Tents include foam mattresses for up to 2 occupants. (The maximum number of tent occupants is two.  Two occupants may share the tent and split the $295 price.)

Air-conditioned PHAT Rooms (referred to as cabins on wheels at the BAM site) are the most luxurious accommodations offered by Pork Belly Ventures, allowing riders to enjoy hotel-style amenities without leaving the ride atmosphere.  Each room is 8' X 10', with 9' ceilings, a window, and a door. A/C and electricity are available day and night.  Each room has two upper twin bunks, one lower twin bunk, a sofa which can convert to a bed, and an optional twin trundle on the floor.  The rooms have laminate floors and clad in knotty pine.  Mattresses, linens, pillows, and extra blankets are provided.  At the foot of each bunk, there's space for a duffel.  Fans circulate cold air around the rooms. Switched lights are located in the ceiling and at the head of each bunk, and electrical outlets are conveniently located around the room for charging electronic devices.  Each room sleeps up to five people.  The room rate of $1300 can be divided among the room occupants.  Click below to see a detailed view of the room.  To sign up for this service scroll to the bottom, create username and password and select the PHAT room service from the list.)
