We are one week away from the 2018 Woolly Race. We would like to take a quick minute to thank all of our sponsors. Without them, we could not have a race. These local businesses have invested in us to host this event. We would greatly appreciate it if you could check them out and if possible, support them in return.

Northwoods Roasterie & Coffee Shop - Official Coffee Shop of the Woolly Bike Club
Driven by his love of an exceptional cup of coffee, John Renaker has made it his mission to provide freshly roasted coffee to the lakes area in Lindstrom, MN and beyond.
Northwoods Roasterie opened it's doors in Nov. of 2006 with little more than a roaster and a few air pots. Through John's Christian foundation of honesty, integrity & his "fairness for all" approach - he found success with his idea of bringing coffee as close to it's origin as possible.
Now in his new location, with an espresso machine, patio and cozy quarters overlooking a full glass pane window into the roasting room, John strives to source only the best fairly-traded and organic beans and has created his own personal roasting style, which results in an adventure in every cup!

RIDGE SUPPLY - The Stoke Lives Here
SHAKE THE DUST. It is hard to believe it has been two years since September 15, 2014. That day, I was hit from behind by a pickup truck traveling at 55 mph while on a solo training ride. It put a bunch of things into perspective for me. Realizing that nothing was a given in this life, I chose to pursue a passion of creating the cycling apparel that swirls in my head. I was reimbursed for the pieces of kit lost in the accident... I invested those few hundred dollars in THE SKYLINE ORIGINAL... the first socks landed in late July of 2015.
The name RIDGE SUPPLY is named after both my son, Ridge, and my home Blue Ridge mountains. The Blue Ridge is home to some of the best cycling terrain in the world. If you have been fortunate enough to take in that view or ride those roads and trails, it stays with you forever. Our first offering THE SKYLINE sock is homage to those shades of Blue.
We are excited to have RIDGE SUPPLY as a first year partner with us for the 2018 season!!

Bikes are often on the back of a vehicle being transported somewhere. Driving along the road less traveled can be great—but what dirt and gravel do to bike components is no good.
No more hassling with offhand solutions
Hey, we’ve been there and done that. We’ve messed with plastic bags that flew off on the road and other crazy mishaps. You want to spend your time biking and not hassling with protecting your bike on the road. That’s why we created Bike Jacket! Easy, fast and effective.
