This north Minneapolis store has all the services you expect from a neighborhood bike shop — professional bike mechanics, custom build-outs, a packed showroom, even an espresso bar for all those tired cyclists out there. Founded in 2011 by Redeemer Center for Life, the shop doubles as a youth development program where kids can master bike mechanics and even earn their own wheels. Bonus: Affordable rehabbed bikes. 1830 Glenwood Av., Mpls.; 612-377-3029; venturenorthbwc.org
