It's not just Penn Cycle's years of experience (the business started in 1957) or locations (seven spread around the Twin Cities) that make its stores a vital part of the local community. In the bicycle-mad Twin Cities, each of its spots offers service along the entire bike continuum: the important first step of purchasing, maintenance, and how to get the best out of your cycling experience. Penn sponsors group rides to bring the community closer together, offers training for those interested in taking the next step to racing, and gives advice on how to leave your car behind and commute to work by bicycle. The staff isn't interested in selling you the latest trend (unless that's what you want), but instead wants to find the right bicycle for your needs. Add in free estimates, walk-in services, and various levels of tune-ups, and you have a perfect one-stop bicycle solution.
