Winter Bikes And Summer Rides

The Winter Bike Expo will is being held Saturday and Sunday at Midtown Bike Center, 2834 10th Ave. south in  Minneapolis.

Maybe Sasquatch hunters should attend the Winter Bike Expo.

Devoted to cyclists who don’t let the region’s cold, snowy winters keep them off the road, the expo will feature exhibits, seminars and opportunities to try the fatbikes offered by the companies represented at the event.

There’s even a craft fair nearby for significant others who have no interest in cold weather cycling. In other words, there’s somethng for sane people.

And now for some completely different

Six cyclists attended the first meeting regarding Pedal for Project Impact Tuesday at LuLu Beans. Four other people couldn’t attend, but said they were interested. One avid and experienced tour cyclist, Gary Peterson, said he plans to ride the entire weeklong, 500-plus mile route from Willmar to Bemidji and back. Some others in attendance said they were considering riding a portion of the route, which we’ll be riding from June 16 to 22.

We’re not looking for a large number of riders so this is a great start.

We’ll be meeting again during the first or second week of January at LuLu Beans. If you’re interested in the ride, contact me through the comment section of this blog or email me at
