  • BASKET! The Classic Wald Basket is available from Erik’s and likely from your local bike shop too! There’s nothing much more utilitarian than this classic basket. Fits a variety of handlebars so at home on your drop bar commuter or your beach cruiser and usually found for under $35. I have them on two of my bikes and paired perfectly with the basket bag from North Street Bags.
  • BAGS! Sturdy Bag Feed Bag – handmade in Minneapolis and likely to become your new must-have bike accessory. Stash your phone, snacks, a full-size nalgene and more! Sinch the straps and it becomes relatively waterproof too. I also love Cedaero bags made in Two Harbors Minnesota with their great color options to customize your ride!
  • COFFEE SUBSCRIPTIONS! Possibly one of the best kept coffee secrets in Minneapolis is The Roastery. The one-man operator Jeremy is flown all over the world teaching others how to perfect the craft of roasting so you know what he makes must be good! A great gift for your bicycling buddies (or yourself) is the roasting class he offers or reach out directly to get a coffee subscription for beans delivered to your door! Amazing coffee subscriptions are also available from Folly in St. Louis Park or Fika in Lutsen, MN. Keep the bicyclist in your life alert and pedaling with amazing coffee from amazing roasters around the state.
