Nearly blown away - Wednesday Night GNBC ride

I want to personally thank Loren and Tim for dragging me all the way to Sabin on Wednesday night. For those of you who didn't venture outside, it was windy to say the least. Gusts up to somewhere like 45mph. Below is a map of the route from Wednesday night.

For those of you looking to connect for a group ride, there are nightly rides leaving from Great Northern Bicycle Co. every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 6pm. Check their website out at and go to the calendar for an explanation of the rides - they get a little faster as the week goes on. Hope to see you out there.

Our F-M area local bike shop has a new name - Great Nothern Bicycle Co.

For those of you who visit downtown often, you've probably noticed some new signage on the north end of Broadway. If you're not a regular to the downtown area, come see what's going on in the heart of Fargo - it's a renaissance. Our local bike shop for the last 20+ years, has changed its name from Island Park Cycles to Great Northern Bicycle Co. The name is keeping alive the heritage of the building that the shop now occupies - a 100-yr old railroad depot. There is also a park of that namesake that is located just off Broadway (did you know they ripped out a huge chunk of parking lot to create a green space downtown - how awesome is that!)

So this is blogging...

You'll have to bare with me for a little while whilst I get the hang of this. I'm hoping this site will help to inform everyone of what's going on in the realm of cycling in the Fargo-Moorhead area. Whether it be the casual cyclists, or those looking to get connected with a group ride, you'll get it here first.

So, I think this image says it best...
