Posted in Preston The Great Outdoors

PRESTON, Minn. - Local businesses are encouraged to welcome participants of the BAM Bicycle Tour to our area. At 4:30 p.m. on August 13, the Bicycling Around Minnesota annual tour will begin registration in Preston for the start of the 2014 tour. Each day all 275 bicyclists will travel 60-80 miles on paved roads and will stop for the night at one of the four cities on the tour route.

The tour will be arriving in Preston on August 13 for registration and will be visiting the local restaurants and shops that the city has to offer. The following morning the tour will be departing from Preston and heading to Peterson for the night. After Peterson they will head to Austin, then to LeRoy, before concluding the tour back in Preston on August 17.

Tour participants will primarily be camping at each location, though some riders may opt to stay at lodging facilities. The tour has meals set up for the riders for all four days. However, the first night in Preston riders will be on their own for meal arrangements.

The Bicycling Around Minnesota annual tour is primarily to enjoy the beautiful southeastern Minnesota bluffs and local attractions along the way. Please extend a Minnesota welcome to riders as they visit our communities and enjoy the sites on their journey across Minnesota.

To bring awareness of business specials or offers to tour participants, contact Preston Tourism Director Sarah Wangen at 507-421-8911 or your local tourism/chamber director. For more information on the BAM Bike Tour visit www.bambiketour.org.
