You + Your Addiction


 

Bikes Are Freedom. #GetSome

We are the third generation to inhabit this space. During the 70′s a bunch of artists moved in. In the 80′s some musicians and film people moved in that knew the artists. In the 90′s a biker that knew the musicians and film people that knew the artists moved in. The stage was set. The 90′s were a whirlwind of bikes, music, film and art in the hood.

Minneapolis was a hot spot in the alt music world during that time. Bands from all over the country passed through the 2nd and 3rd floors of 117 Washington Ave N, and a lot of good music came out of this building. It was a really good time.

From 1993 to 1998, Minneapolis had a run of professional bicycle races come through town with the Norwest Cup and the NORBA NCS races.

At the time, California, Colorado and New England were the cycling kingdoms. This all changed when professional cycling came to Minneapolis. We were tired of all the talk. While they were talking, we were doing.

So when the pros and the company’s that sponsored them came to town, we showed them what cycling culture was all about. Our riders never won the races, but we did win the hearts and minds of the pros, and the bicycle industry people that support them. We know how to throw a after race party for 300 people and not get busted by the police. We know how to get certain un-named pros back to their hotel or to the airport after a hard night.

People saw that we had more fun and less talk, and they liked that. We showed them that you don’t need a mountain or an ocean to ride a bicycle and have fun.

Bicycles are freedom, get some.
