2018 NEW DATE AND LOCATION!

NOVEMBER 3RD + 4TH

FREEWHEEL BIKE EDEN PRAIRIE

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.
