A few mere hours till blast off

In a few hours MPLS’ fun loving folks will be ignoring the Kentucky Derby and gathering in Logan Park for some fun.

scAVENGER! would also like to welcome our out of town teams who trekked from as far as KC, MO and Chicago to play.

Just going to recap a few thing: To find out all the specifics please check out our details page. And for all of you sad sacks that aren’t going to race come watch your friends dash through the 331 Club and Grumpy’s NE. These two bars have been designated as scAVENGER! viewing platforms.

A big thanks Pat over at Grumpy’s for donating a bottle of Irish Whiskey to be raffled at the after party. Grumpy’s is rock solid when it comes to supporting cycling in the Twin Cities.

See you at the race.


Thank you thank you


We at scAVENGER HQ would like to thank the Loring Pasta Bar for generously pitching in to the prize pool. The Loring offers a variety of tasty food and drink as well as live music in its boho-chic atmosphere on the corner of 4th Street and 14th Avenue in Dinkytown, Minneapolis — just down the road from Varsity Bikes and Erik’s Bike Shop.

And for you, our dear scAVENGER, we continue to scheme … Perhaps a clever riddle to tickle your ticker and boggle your brains? Oh, we have such things …

Peace Coffee

Everyone knows that coffee and bicycles go great together, so we’d like to welcome yet another wonderful sponsor that has recently come aboard, Peace Coffee. In addition to selling fair trade organic coffee they also do a majority of their deliveries by bicycle. How cool is that? Peace Coffee is always first in line to offer support to local community events, as evidenced by their long list of events they sponsor every year.

Check out their history here and keep Peace Coffee in mind the next time you are about to throw down for a pound o beans.

Behind Bars Bicycle Shop

Behind Bars

The good news keeps on rollin’ in. Just heard back from Chuck over at Behind Bars Bicycle Shop. We are getting a slew of cool and useful prizes from Behind Bars and we here at scAVENGER! would like to extend a big hearty thank you.

If you haven’t been to Behind Bars in Northeast, you need to ride on up and check out a very well put together bike shop.

They have all kinds of bikes. Many that aren’t sold in very many other places in the Twin Cities. And the shop space is very unlike any others around town. Its so wide open you feel tempted to do a test ride indoors.

Behind Bars can be seen from an airplane because of its bright orange exterior or at 208 13th Avenue NE in Minneapolis, MN.

Zero Per Gallon

ZPG hates goats

We here at scAVENGER! are pleased to welcome Zero Per Gallon to the sponsorship roster. Jonny5 who runs ZPG was lightning fast in his response to our request for sponsorship. And as Jonny5 has been assured this race is totally goat-free, he’s shipping us a bunch of stickers and patches to give away as prizes.

And if anyone sees me rocking a ZPG patch before the race don’t worry I paid for that one myself. 😉

Surly Bikes

Surly Bikes

We here at scAVENGER! would like to extend a big fuck yah to local bicycle company Surly Bikes for choosing to sponsor our race. We can’t wait to see the goody bag of prizes we get from them. It will be a short love affair however, as we will be giving all the prizes away on May 5th.

And make sure to get to your local bike shop and get a new complete Surly Steamroller while they last. I saw a few at The Hub on Saturday. I bet that won’t last long.

I’ve also enjoy their flickr photo stream. There are roughly one billion photos from their recent invasion of Japan.
