SPOKES Bike Walk Connect is a community biking and walking center in south Minneapolis, with a mission of creating a more informed and diverse biking and walking community. We want to help anyone make use of bicycles and walking for transportation, exercise and recreation. SPOKES does this by working to remove any barriers that make it difficult for people to use bicycles and walk.
We are located near the LRT Bike Trail at 1915 East 22nd Street (1/2 block west of Minnehaha Avenue, 1 block south of Franklin Avenue and the Franklin LRT station). Browse this site and visit our Facebook Page to find out more about us.
SPOKES is a nonprofit and, of course, we would also really appreciate a donation! SPOKES is a program of the Seward Neighborhood Group, Inc.

We have for sale a beautiful 2001 GT ZR 3.0 road frame and fork! The frame is 59cm, TIG-welded, 7000 butted aluminum and is fit for 700c wheels, and the fork features carbon fiber composite blades. It comes with a stem, bars, seatpost, and derailleur hangar, and is very lightweight. It has some small cosmetic scratches, but overall is in excellent condition.Stop by the shop during our open hours and check it out! The bike is priced with the components mentioned at $225.
Also we have a large variety of mountain, hybrid and some road frames for sale, most range from $20 – $100 and most but not all are steel frames. Some include forks, cranksets, etc. It is a great time to build up a winter bike or start putting together a sweet ride for next year.
The Native Art and Bikes Community Ride on Sunday was a huge success. It was a partnership between SPOKES, Minneapolis Bike Coalition, Native American Community Development Institute and All My Relations Gallery. You can read all about it in the blog post from the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition.
