It’s on. The Summer Minneapolis Bike Party Weekend is back for it’s 14th year.
The Fourteenth Running of the Summertime Bike Blowout.
This year we’re coming in hot with a singular goal of bringing the amazing Minneapolis cycling community together. This is most likely the last All City Championships ever and we want to see your faces there.
The main event this time around is going to be a social ride. We’re doing an old school poker run at cruiser speed around Minneapolis. Easily accessible to everybody who might want to come.
All race events will have Open and W/T/F/NB categories and equal prizes.
The poker run will have one champion who will win a Surly Cross Check frameset of their size, but prizes will be doled out along the route.
$15 fee gets you into all events
