PAUL'S BACON RIDE #3 UPDATE
After speaking with an official at the Minnesota DNR office today we sadly have to announce the cancellation of the 3rd Paul’s Bacon Ride for August 29th, 2020. The Minnesota DNR will not be issuing Trail Use Permits to groups larger than 30 people.
We will be issuing full refunds to everyone that has registered.
While we can’t get together on August 29th for the third year in a row, we suggest still traveling to the Brainerd area and spending some quality time in that area on the Paul Bunyan Trail.
Please stop at some of these great establishments.
- Roundhouse Brewery
- Local 218
- Jack Pine Brewery
- Dennis Drummond Winery
- Shep’s on 4th
- Moon Tooned
- Big Axe Brewery
- Ye Olde Pickle Factory

We’d also like to thank our main sponsor Visit Brainerd for their support!

Hope to see you in 2021!
Thank you and OHHHH, BACON!

RIDING THE PAUL
The Paul Bunyan State Trail is one of the longest rail-trails in the country. The multi-use trail follows an inactive railroad corridor built in 1893. The corridor passes through boreal forests, along lakes, rivers and streams. You might also encounter wildlife along the ride's 45 miles visiting the trail towns of Merrifield, Nisswa and Pequot Lakes.
PBR TRUCKER HATS
The PBR Snapback Trucker Hats will be available for $20 each. They are adjustable with one size fits all and room for the pony tail if you got lots of hair! You can pick them up at the Packet Pick Up Party in Brainerd at the Roundhouse Brewery.
