    COVID-19 Update during 'Minnesota Stay Safe'

    The latest "Minnesota Stay Safe" order began today. Staying safe at Perennial Cycle is a priority. We are working hard to keep our employees and customers as safe as possible. Due to our deep concern about safety, we will continue to be open but we will also continue with our modified manner of operation:

    Repairs and tune-ups will continue, though you will not be entering the shop. Please fill out this form to give mechanics information about your service needs. Bring your bicycle to the front door of the shop, and knock or give a call. Staff will meet you at door to take your bicycle after you step away. The mechanic will follow up with a phone call after they've looked over your bicycle to discuss service. No work will begin until you've approved it.

    ‘No Contact' Merchandise Pick-up
    The majority of our merchandise is on our website and may be purchased online. Choose ‘curbside pick up’ and come to the front of the shop. If you need assistance, give a call at (612) 827-8000 or use the online chat on our website.

The appointments are currently being grouped by style of bike. There are a maximum of 4 slots per evening. Please fill out this form if you’d like to schedule a sales appointment.

    Save the Date! Brompton Racing Goes to Washington this July

    Mr. Smith Goes to Washington with his Brompton

    That's right, Bromptoneers! The 2014 Brompton US Championship will take place in our nation's capital on the weekend of July 11 through 13, 2014. After two great years of Brompton Racing in Minneapolis, Perennial Cycle is honored to pass the torch that is the Brompton US Championship to BicycleSPACE in Washington, D.C.

    We remain grateful to Mike McGettigan at Trophy Bikes in Philadelphia for the aid he lent us when we were handed the race in early 2012 and hope to be able to help in any way we can to the staff at Bicycle Space.

    Bicycle Space D.C.

    If you're thinking of making the trek to Washington for the race, know that you're in good hands. BicycleSPACE is run by a great group of people committed to fostering a welcoming environment for everyone from beginner cyclists to hard-core daily commuters. The shop's interior is gorgeous and many of the same great brands you'll find at Perennial Cycle are at home at BicycleSPACE—including Brompton (of course), Brooks, and Linus. When it comes to planning the details of this year's Brompton race, manager Jordan Mittelman is on familiar turf. Take a look at BicycleSPACE's event calendar and you'll quickly see that the staff is busy every week with yoga classes, in-house maintenance clinics, and group rides.

    Looking for further details? The date is set, but many of the specifics surrounding the event are still in the planning stages. To be the first to know once registration opens, watch for news at, join the mailing list, and follow Bicycle Space on Twitter and Facebook. As you begin making your plans for race-day, get inspiration for your race kit by checking out photos from the 2013 race on Flickr. While we won't be hosting the event this year, you can be sure we'll be re-tweeting any big news from BicycleSPACE and keeping you up to speed on the Perennial Cycle Facebook page as well. And, with any luck, you may just see a member of team Perennial at the starting line!
