Joy Ride Series Presents: Decorated Bike Ride & Odell Bike Night

Join the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition on Friday, June 28 for a colorful evening ride. We’re challenging riders to dress their bikes to the nines for a chance to win some awesome prizes. Riders will begin meeting up at 6:30 at Midtown Freewheel. Arrive in time to check in, meet your fellow riders and enter your name into our raffle to win some fun bike goodies.

We’ll roll out our works of art at 7:15 p.m., ride the Greenway to the river and then cross into St. Anthony Main area via the Stone Arch Bridge. (Check out the course here:

The ride will end at New Bohemia around 8 p.m. where Odell Brewing is sponsoring a special bike night in which the most decked out bikes will be judged to win prizes from New Bohemia, Odell and others. So get out the streamers and glitter and flaunt it – the crazier, the better. Sausage and beer themed bikes will earn extra points!

New Bohemia is also generously offering food specials to those who participate in the ride, so come hungry.

The event is all ages and pet-friendly, so bring the whole family for this evening of fun!

Participants will be required to sign a waiver at the start of our ride and helmets and lights are required. We also ask that if you choose to drink at the event, please drink and ride responsibly.
