  • 1 – 5pm Full Cycle Bike Shop is a nonprofit bike shop in south Minneapolis that offers quality bikes and service to our community,  and provides important resources and opportunities to young people experiencing homelessness.Got a bike collecting dust in your garage?  Donate it! We are collecting “gently used” bicycles on Saturday, July 14 from 1-10pm. Don’t have a bike?  Drop by and donate some cash – these people are amazing and help hundreds of kids each year.
  • 1 – 5pm Our Streets Minneapolis,  for better biking during the winter months in Minneapolis. Now is the time save up for one of those fat tire winter bikes.  Now is the time to scope out a local shop that sells said bikes, and shop around a little.  Saturday, July 14 is the time to attend a bicycle-centric Boom Days event, drink some Cuvée and fill out a postcard directed to the Minneapolis City Council to improve sidewalk cleaning during winter for bicyclists!

  • 1 – 5pm Recovery Bikes. This is another amazing bike shop who does more than just repair and sell bikes. They run a program called More than a Bicycle. They fix donated bikes and ship them to Africa. Parts of Africa are growing rapidly, but there are still serious infrastructure needs and the poorest of the poor are often left behind in a developing nation. In places where it exists even public transportation can be too expensive for a daily commute. Bicycles help pick up the slack. A bicycle can turn a three hour walk to the market into a half-hour errand.

A Summer Celebration of Beer, Bands and Bicycles

For our 5th annual Boom Days summer celebration, we will be pulling out all the stops, and more than a few corks. It all begins on Friday evening with the much-anticipated release of Cuvée de Boom and Petite  Rosé.

Cuvée de Boom is unhopped beer that consists of a blend of Belgian blond ale and Chardonnay.  Petite Rosé is a delicious hybrid of Belgian strong ale and a tantalizing French Mediterranean Rosé. Both will be available on tap and in bottles during Boom Days while supplies last.

Visitors can also enjoy local bands and food trucks, take a yoga class, get their bicycles tuned up by Velofix Mobile Bike Repair or Tangletown Bikes, tour the Mississippi on an electric bike, enter a homebrew competition, learn about Belgian-inspired brewing.
