Weekend Cycling Events

There is so much going on this weekend, we won’t distract you with any intro, get out and ride!

Friday:

30 Days of Biking Kick-Off Ride – Today is (hopefully) the first of 30 straight days of you riding your bike!  If you’ve signed the pledge, there is nothing left but to do it.  Rain, sleet or snow this event is happening, meet at 6:00 pm at Gold Medal Park in Minneapolis for a fun group ride through Minneapolis.  The ride will depart at 6:30.

Saturday:

Confident Cycling: Getting Started – Hosted by Hokan, this beginners level class is being put on by BikeMN and will teach you what you need to know to get out on the road. The class is at the Freewheel Midtown location (on the Greenway) and starts at 9:30. You early risers won’t be disappointed Hokan knows his stuff!

Legacy Weekend Bike RideThe flooding along the Mississippi River in Saint Paul won’t stop this ride.  It is leisurely and includes free coffee plus a chance to win a few prizes.  Meet at 10am where Mississippi River Boulevard meets Emerald Street SE.

B+S+C + Twin Six ARTCRANK RideAndy of Blood Sweat Chemo and the people of Twin Six plan on meeting at Twin Six Headquarters at 3:00 for a rolling party to the ARTCRANK launch.

MPLS Bike Love ARTCRANK Group RideDeparting from the Northrup King Building in Northeast around 4:00, this promises to be one of the larger group rides to ARTCRANK.

30 Days of Biking Short Shorts ARTCRANK Group RideBreak out the Daisy Dukes, this ride departs at 4:30 from the Lake Calhoun Yacht Harbor.

ARTCRANKIt’s finally here!  Shelter Studios, 5-9 pm.  Bike up, have fun, buy posters.

Sunday:

No Name Alleycat If you didn’t party too hard at ARTCRANK the April monthly installment of the No Name Alleycat is here.  6:30 meet-up on the Northeast end of the Stone Arch Bridge.

Tune-up Time – From the best we can tell, almost all bike shops are a week or less out on spring tune-ups.  This will still be the case until the first day above 50 degrees without snow on the ground.  You are really going to want to ride your bike that day, but if it has a broken brake or an inner tube with a hole, you are going to be sitting that ride out.  The worst part is, when you bring your bike into the shop then, they will be two – three weeks out.  Bring it in today, or you know, learn how to fix it yourself.
