Boone Dawdle - August 15, 2015

Whole Shebang

On sale now • $85

By far our most popular pass, the Whole Shebang offers the complete, immersive Boone Dawdle experience. This one gets you everything--the bike ride, the t-shirt, the shuttle home, transpo for your bike, food, drink, concert, and film. An investment in a fun, fundraising event!

  • Surpise and busker-filled bike ride from downtown Columbia to Les Bourgeois Winery (complete with trail support, water, live music and other surprises along the way)
  • Limited edition Boone Dawdle shirt
  • Local foods picnic at Les Bourgeois
  • Two drink tickets good for beer or wine
  • Pre-film concert 
  • Outdoor screening, followed by director Q&A
  • Shuttle back to downtown Columbia for you and your bike
  • The Mini Float Trip, a 25-minute boat ride on the Missouri River with Missouri River Relief, is available to Whole Shebang purchasers for an additional $8. You can add it to your purchase in the black box on the left. 

Price increased $10 to $85 at 11:59 pm on August 1.

Don't forget to add on the Float Trip and Bike Sherpa Services (so you don't have to lug your bike up the steep, winding hill at the end of the ride).

Mini Float Trip

Sold Out • $8

This extra-special Trailside Surprise gives you the chance to enjoy a 25-minute round-trip boat ride on the Missouri River with our friends from Missouri River Relief. Once you reach Katfish Katy's, you'll make your way down to the boat ramp, check your bike with our crew, then jump on a boat for a tour of the Big Muddy, which will include spectacular views of the limestone bluffs, eagles' nests, and prehistoric artwork, as well as insider knowledge about the river imparted by the River Relief crew. Once you're back at the boat ramp, you'll grab your bike and pedal the remaining six miles to Les Bourgeois.

Float trips will depart every 10-15 minutes from 3:30-5:45 pm. We estimate it will take you approximately two hours to reach Katfish Katy's (allowing for time to enjoy other surprises along the trail) and another hour to ride from Katfish Katy's to Les Bourgeois. Allow 45-60 minutes for the float trip, including time to check your bike, put on a life jacket, and listen to a quick safety talk. Please note that the last float trip will depart at 5:45 pm. 

The Float Trip is limited to the first 100 folks who reserve it; $8 for Whole Shebang-ers and complimentary for purchasers of a 2016 Super Circle pass. 

Bike Sherpa Services

On sale now • $20
