Source for Athena clothing in Minneapolis/St. Paul

My wife and I are in Minnesota for about 10 days. I am working and we will be riding every day that the weather cooperates. Unfortunately we only brought one of pair of shorts and one jersey for my wife.

Can anyone suggest an LBS that has larger size women's cycling clothes in stock in the Twin Cities?

That's a tough one. REI has good selections in general, and located Bloomington, Roseville, and Maple Grove. They might have the right size. Eric's is pretty big chain and might have the size at one of the stores and do the same thing. Also try Excel Cycle - they are local, recently turned into an etailer, and order / ship from local a local warehouse so might get you one-day delivery. They have a web site and sell through Amazon.
FB4K - Every October we wrench on donated bikes. Every December, a few thousand kids get bikes for Christmas. For many, it is their first bike, ever. Every bike, new and used, was donated, built, cleaned and repaired. Check us out on FaceBook: FB4K.

Disclaimer: 99% of what I know about cycling I learned on BF. That would make, ummm, 1% experience. And a lot of posts.

Erik's has several locations and has been my go-to shop in the cities. They have several locations. Behind Bars on 13th is also a good shop. The Hub Bike Co-op on Lake Street is another possibility. There are others but I haven't dealt with them enough to give recommendations.

Behind Bars

Just rinse your gear in some mild soapy water in the sink and hang it up each night - you don't even really need dry gear to ride.

I'd go with REI. Look on line and check stock at the store to save time - there are three REI's in the Twin Cities.
