Northeast Ride, a bicycle tour through Northeast Minneapolis’ 13 neighborhoods

Alright folks, it’s time to dust off your rims, pump-up your tires and get your bikes tuned-up! The inaugural running of the Northeast Ride is coming up June 2nd, 2012 and we’re proud to announce our support for the event.

The ride, which is open to all, weaves cyclists through the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District, touring past historical landmarks like the Casket Arts Building and the Grain Belt Brewery complex. And if touring NE on bikes with friends and family isn’t fun enough, there will be a plethora of pit stops along the way with creative activities sponsored by local businesses. Stay tuned because Indeed has some fun ideas up our sleeves. Even though we won’t have beer available quite yet, prizes will be awarded!

Take note that if you register for the Urban Assault Ride (another great local cycling event, set for the week after NE Ride) using the coupon code “MSP12NERide10off” you receive discounted entry into NE Ride.

Lastly, “30 Days of Biking,” an idea to get people to ride their bikes on each of the 30 days in April begins April 1. In its third year, #30DaysofBiking is aimed to encourage non-cyclists to adopt more active lifestyles. The event, which has gone national and even international, say they signed up more than 500 people in 2010 and more than 2,000 last year.

So c’mon and join us, we promise a fun time will be had by all!
