FF10: Every Dollar Counts

Each Friday, we publish a post from the team at Full Cycle – beneficiaries of the Surly Masher. These snapshots of their work and the youth served will help you get to know them better, and appreciate the importance of supporting youth experiencing homelessness in our community. We also encourage you to visit Full Cycle Bike Shop in South Minneapolis to see their work first-hand, check out the shop’s inventory, and get set-up for winter.



The first-ever collaboration of the two iconic Minnesota Surly brands is exciting in and of itself. What's more, all proceeds from this event benefit Full Cycle. While the event is FREE and open to all, there are plenty of fun and easy ways to support the work Full Cycle does to connect with and support youth experiencing homelessness.

BONUS: You don't have to be present to win. Heck, you don't even have to attend the event to win if you purchase a Masher Bundle or make a personal donation online.

 

Product Purchases

Product purchases are a fun way to treat yourself (or a friend) while also benefiting a good cause. 

 

Surly Masher Bundle

Each Masher Bundle includes a Specialized KEG bottle, which fits in a standard bottle cage and is perfect for carrying your road beverages, snacks, dog treats, or tools. Inside the bottle, we've stuffed a pair of branded DeFeet Wooleater socks with 6" cuffs, an 'indestructible' spoke card, three vinyl stickers, two FREE BEER tickets, and one DOOR PRIZE ENTRY!

 

Surly Bikes Merino Wool Beanie

These hats are warm AF and will be perfect for spending your Sunday afternoon outside with us on the 11th. Available in two colors.

 

More products

Full Cycle hoodies are $5 off the original price if you buy them through the Masher website or at the event, and they are really warm and soft. We've also got Hoo-Rags, t-shirts, and more.
 
Check out the Surly Masher shop for more size and color options. Quantities are limited on all products, get them while they last!

 

Personal Donations

For every $10 you give, you will get one door prize entry ticket!

Personal donations can be made online or inside the heated Full Cycle tent. Full Cycle gives away hundreds of bikes for free to youth experiencing homelessness in the Twin Cities year-round and your donations help to support the work of the shop to make transportation more accessible to youth striving to make it on their own.

EXTRA BONUS: Everybody that attends the Surly Masher gets one FREE door prize ticket. Visit the Full Cycle tent to claim yours!
