Grand Re-Opening

Sunrise Cyclery has moved to a NEW LOCATION at 2901 Blaisdell Ave.!  Grease Rag Uptown happens at Sunrise Cyclery on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month, from 7-9 PM.

Wednesday, 12/12/12 from 12:12- 9PM

Stop by and celebrate the new shop location.  There will be some foods and beverages, and feel free to bring your own snacks, too.  

If you are on the Greenway, exit at the Nicollet ramp, proceed down Nicollet, and turn left onto 29th, after the self-serve car wash on the corner. The shop is on your left, before you hit the next light at Blaisdell.  29th is a one-way for cars, but there is a counter-flow lane for cyclists.

Welcome to your new home, Sunrise!  See you soon!

There is an annual craft show this Saturday, which features a lot of bike-related crafts!  My friend Heidi is an organizer and a maker, and I love attending this show every year.

Saturday, December 15th, 10-6

One on One Bike Shop: 117 Washington Ave. N., Minneapolis


I recently watched this video, made to promote a big bike-themed craft show in Portland, OR.  I am inspired!  Are you interested in attending a bike-themed craft-luck?  I want to make this happen soon.  A perfect winter party.
