What we Support
Northstar Junior Development Cycling
We are very proud to be associated with this high quality program designed for youth and young adults under age 23. Four coaches and 40+ kids from beginner to international elite. I had the pleasure of traveling with the team for a week this summer and I can't say enough good things about this program. They have a website in development. For now you can find them on Facebook.
Since we opened in 1991 we have been volunteering with various MS bike rides. Each year we spend about 10 days traveling along with the rides with our mobile bike shop. Personally I have spent about 150 days out on MS rides working as a bike mechanic. They are a fantastic organization and I have had so much fun working with this group.
We have been working the Como Park rest stop for many years. Stop by and say Hi. Having the roads closed off to traffic makes this a unique, fun, and safe event for riders of all ages and ability levels.
Additional community involvement
We also do many one day events whether it is a bike rodeo safety checks, race support at the Fairgrounds Criteriums, or donations. I wish we could support all the requests we get. We get over 100 requests a year and try to do what we can.
