All City Championship Poster

July 13th, 2010

Here’s the web version of the All City Championship 5 poster I designed for Jeff over at Bikejerks/All-City Cycles. I’ll be printing some up next week after I get through the BFF. It’s always an amazing weekend, maybe this year I can make it on the podium! The bike party weekend is centered around the big, annual summer alleycat, but also includes a trick competition (bring it FGFSers!), match sprints, a trackstand contest, and Zito’s Freeride!


Saint Valentine’s Day Hustle

March 2nd, 2010

Back on the 13th of February, our friend Justin threw a unique race in Menomonie, Wisconsin dubbed the Saint Valentine’s Day Hustle. Three of us drove out to ride out bikes on the frozen surface of Lake Menomin.


No Name 45 Results

February 11th, 2010

Sunday’s No Name 45 street race was a smashing success with a grand total of 3 racers. I had planned assuming that almost no-one would want to race the day after the Stupor Bowl, and with snow coming down I was kind of surprised that anyone showed up.


Stupor Bowl 13 Recap

February 8th, 2010

Last weekend, hearty cyclists united in downtown Minneapolis for Stupor Bowl 13, an annual alleycat race that takes place the day before the Super Bowl, no matter what the weather. This was my fifth Stupor Bowl, and although certain I couldn’t win, I was committed to racing hard and improving on my ranking last year.


17-Foot High Pierogi Sculpture to Adorn Intersection of Lowry & Central

January 29th, 2010

Community Garden? Awesome! Public Art? Sweet! A giant pierogi? Uhh… Last spring and summer a group from Edison High School constructed a community garden on the site, and that’s really cool—but now there are plans to install a 17-foot high pierogi on a fork on a pedestal.

New Look for mplsbikepolo.com!

January 25th, 2010

Tonight I launched the new look for mplsbikepolo.com, something I’ve been working on for a while. It’s mostly just cosmetic for now, although I’ve set up the framework for some tournament-related backend stuff for the near future.


Opening Day At The Art Shanty Projects

Stupor Bowl 13!

Like several other Minneapolis bicycle-related blogs, including El Jefe’s Bike Jerks, I was holding off on posting about the upcoming Stupor Bowl until I had some graphics in hand. Until I got the graphics. And then I just decided to go ahead and post about it.

Reporting on the Reporter

Some emissaries from mplsbikelove.com met up with reporter Steve Friedman from Bicycling Magazine to show him around town and talk with him a bit about what makes Minneapolis the persistent runner-up to the de facto U.S. bicycling capital Portland, Oregon.
