This year, we added a new dimension to 30 Days of Biking, a Minneapolis-born challenge to ride your bike in April. For every 30 pledges to ride, we are donating 1 bike to Free Bikes 4 Kidz, a Minneapolis non-profit that has given thousands of bikes to kids in need (who couldn’t otherwise afford a bike) since their inception in 2008.

So, because 30 Days of Biking is put on by a small team of friends, a lot of people wondered, “HOW are you guys able to afford donating so many bikes?” That question has many answers. One way is our sponsors, another is our merchandise, created this year through a partnership with Banjo Brothers.

A THIRD way is an event that’s coming up this weekend. Our friend Adam Turman, who’s renowned for his paintings, posters and bicycling art, is putting on an event titled “Enjoy the Ride: A Year’s Worth of Cycling Art.” And he’s donating the proceeds from his show to our Free Bikes 4 Kidz fund.

The paintings on display at the show are all inspired by photographs from Adam’s friends, including Robert Williams, Pete Crabtree, Ben McCoy, Willie Humke, Johnny Woodside, and others. It’s Adam’s way of celebrating the Twin Cities bicycling community, as well as the work of his friends, and of giving back to an awesome non-profit that pays the power of bicycling forward.

The event is this Saturday, April 19, 2014, at Chowgirls Parlor, 1222 NE 2nd Street, Minneapolis, from 7 to 11 p.m. There’ll be treats from Chowgirls and beer from 612Brew, and it’s an event you shouldn’t miss.
