10AM - 5PM
For decades Minneapolis cyclists have gathered in the winter to ride their bikes, share their tales, and have good times. The movement has lived at the front of our collective brains for some time. We just recently gave it a name and a venue. We gather all the brands with a dedication to winter riding and put them on display in one location. Come ride with us, learn with us, and embrace the wonderful mayhem that winter has to offer.

FAT BIKE DEMOS
Virtually every fat bike from Salsa, Surly, and Trek will be on hand for you to test ride. We'll have a fresh set of curves, bumps, and lumps for you to ride on. Fat bike suspension? Carbon fat bike rims? Those new tires you've been eyeballing? Yes, we'll have all of them on hand for you to sample.
This is also your opportunity to talk with the product managers behind each of these brands, so you can get a total understanding of which bike is right for you.
