It's been one amazing ride!
Since we opened our first location, we’ve found success in Minneapolis by putting our customers first, sharing our love of riding, and welcoming everyone who visits us, whether they’re an experienced mountain biker, a first-time roadie, or a commuter.
After a great deal of consideration, we’ve decided that the time has come to take a new and exciting step. We’ve found a partner in Freewheel Bike, who will take what we’ve created here at Penn Cycle and build on it, continuing to serve our community in even bigger and better ways while sticking to the same core principles of treating people like family and delivering outstanding customer service. Five of our shops will reopen on Saturday, March 23rd as Freewheel Bike locations. Our Uptown Minneapolis store, which is just over a mile from the Freewheel Midtown Bike Center location, will be closing permanently.
Freewheel Bike has agreed to honor your outstanding Penn Cycle gift cards* with no expiration date and, most importantly, they have promised to take the greatest care of our generations of customers. We’re confident Freewheel Bike will immediately become a central support network for all cyclists in our community. While there may be some changes, we hope you find them as exciting as we do and know we're leaving you in good hands.
And lastly, we’d like to send a big thank you to each and every one of you for helping to make this place what it is, and for continuing to make us such a special part of the community.
*Your Penn Cycle gift cards must be in the form of a magstripe readable gift card. Vouchers, paper gift certificates and anything dating before our current computer system will unfortunately not be honored.
