Sauk centre police found this ebike abandoned on the Wobegon! https://www.facebook.com/840426246109376/posts/1342170099268319/?sfnsn=mo
I’m not sure who was more excited about this little lady’s birthday gift - the birthday girl or Jake?! 😂
Congratulations on your new building. We are excited for you!!
Thank you Jake and Logan for making our Christmas special, now the snow needs to go away - :)
I've been doing more biking lately and have found people in vehicles don't understand when I'm turning. What do you guys recommend for lighted turn signals for use during the day.
I've looked on your website already... Do you sell new or used pedal assist bikes? I'm disabled and am looking for a normal bike (not recumbant) with assistance so I can bike further than 3 miles without being in pain for weeks afterwards.
Buying my new bike was a fab experience. Thanks Michael
Step 1: Buy a Trek from Jake Step 2: Win AG and 3rd OA
Thanks for the beautiful new bike! Ruby has been riding it ever since she picked it out this morning. Another satisfied customer :)
Just want to thank you again for supporting the MS Tram especially the NoMSing Around team. #NoMSingAround #bestbikeshopever #jakesthebest #MSTram

Jake’s experience in bike sales and service goes back to when I was 13 years old and began working in a local bike shop. I’ve been in bike sales and service ever since. In April of 2009 I decided to open my own shop and offer only the best in service to every customer. Our simple goal at Jake’s Bikes is to improve your total bike experience - from the shop to the trail. Jake’s Bikes' enthusiasm for bikes and our expert repair service is highly regarded. At Jake’s Bikes, we truly care about your experience!

This was one of my favorite books when I was a kid. My mom made this for me. It reminds me of how Curious George over came his problem of getting a bent wheel. So fitting right now in these times. We will get through this. Please remember to treat people like you would want to be treated and be a good neighbor.

Please please please stay off the mountain bike trails until they are ready to ride. This picture show the damage that’s been done by riding them when they are still wet. This take a ton of time to fix so if your tire leaves any mark please stop riding the trails. Please pass the word by sharing this post.

Stay off the mountain bike trails!!!

Trails Report

Hey Folks with the current COVID-19 situation that we are all dealing with I just wanted to get you a heads up on the trail conditions.

In the Blink is a behind the scenes look at Anthill Films' 2019 feature film Return to Earth. Episode 1, titled Fall Colours, take us to the autumn season transition in Bromont, Quebec. Featuring Thomas Vanderham and Ryan Howard

This week we're featuring segments from the 2019 mountain bike film Return to Earth by Anthill Films! First up is Fall Colors. This segment was filmed in Bromont, Quebec during the vibrant autumn transformation. Timing was of the essence as many sections of forest were literally losing the last of their leaves as the athletes and film crew worked their way through the trails.

"I've certainly never watched leaves that closely, I always appreciated them as a passerby. It was cool to be so in tune with what was going on in the environment around us." — Thomas Vanderham

You can purchase a pass at gas stations that sell licenses or online. Below is the link for more information or to purchase a pass online. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/licenses/skipass/index.html
