On Saturday, a few hundred North Minneapolis residents gathered as Venture North Bike Walk & Coffee opened its doors. The bike shop, located at 1830 Glenwood Ave., will sell a full line of new and refurbished bikes, helmets, locks and other biking and walking accessories. What’s more, the shop will also be selling Dogwood Coffee in mid-November featuring its own “Venture North” blend.
The grand opening event on Saturday drew a big crowd and featured local leaders including Minneapolis City Council Members, Don Samuels, Diane Hofstede and Barbara Johnson; Rep. Bobby Joe Champion; Sen. Linda Higgins and a staff member from U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison’s office. These leaders helped usher in a new era of healthy choices in North Minneapolis. The event also featured music, dancing, face painting, Dogwood coffee, free flu shots, food and a host of other vendors and community partners.
At the same time, new bike lanes were opening on Emerson and Fremont Avenues, which will help make getting around North Minneapolis much easier.
