Community Events



All events are free (unless noted) and inclusive in every way!



Every Sunday 10am
Coffee (Outside)




This is a weekly informal gathering meant to start the weel off right. New location every week. Check Instagram for this week's destination. The idea is that you bring and make your own coffee, but there is almost always coffee and treats to share. Bringing your own cup is a good idea, but some of us aren't even coffee drinkers. So I guess there aren't any rules.



Make an Appointment
The Grocery Run




Practice rides on city streets. Pick any 2 spots in NE, like your house and a grocery store. We’ll plan and ride a route together at your pace.

Studies show that most people are confined to cars out of fear and would ride more if they felt safer. And since we all enjoy riding more when we all enjoy riding more, we offer the Grocery Run as a confidence boosting bike ride.

Practice hand signals. Talk about riding etiquette. Perform a safety check. Review riding and traffic laws. Ask questions. Get answers.

These rides are slow, patient, boring, and involve frequent stops. Join us!

IMPORTANT: The number one thing that makes people more comfortable is other riders. If people see you ride, it encourages others to ride too!




1st & 3rd Wed
5-7pm
DIY Night




Free bicycle repair! You do the work, we show you how. Use our tools. Use our shop. Mechanics on duty. Get your questions answered. Hang out. Free! No experience necessary! Also, we love volunteers!

Great Northeast Mural Hunt

This scavenger hunt celebrates the new murals installed by the Northeast Mpls Chamber of Commerce on Central Ave. Look for our daily Instagram posts for April 2023 and check in at 5 checkpoints to earn this merit patch (at left). Click for details.

Originally executed in April of 2023, the murals are still available and you can still earn a patch by hitting just 5 of them. Scroll back through our Instagram feed to April 2023 to see all 30 checkpoints.




Any Time





Great Northeast Before and After Scavenger Hunt

Kind of like a 30 chapter story on how Northeast became Northeast. Follow the journey from the native American tribes that lived here for the last 10,000 years all the way up to how Recovery Bike Shop ended up on the block today.

Originally executed in September of 2021, the checkpoints are still available and you can still earn a patch by hitting just 5 of them. Scroll back through our Instagram feed to September 2021 to see all 30 checkpoints.




Any Time





Great Northeast Antisocial Scavenger Hunt

A celebration of the 30 best spots (in our humble opinion) in Northeast Minneapolis. The murals and sculptures. The bridges and buildings. The landmarks and businesses. It's all here!

Originally executed during 30 Days of Biking 2020, the checkpoints are still available and you can still earn a patch by hitting just 5. Scroll through our Instagram feed back to April 2020 to see all 30 checkpoints.




April 2022 (EXPIRED)





Great Northeast Merit Patch Challenge - Lowry Ave NE

The redevelopment of Lowry Ave NE is a once in a generation oportunity to reshape our neighborhood. We're hosting twice daily commutes during 30 Days of Biking (April) to raise awareness of the planning that is going to change our community for decades to come. Join us and help put bike lanes on the map (not a sure thing).
