About the Campaign

From 2007-2012 the number of trips made by bicycle in Minneapolis increased 56%. More and more people are realizing that bicycling is an easy and efficient way to get around our city. With an increase in the number of bicyclists, Minneapolis has been fortunate to see the number of bicycle crashes remain flat. Nonetheless, reducing the number of crashes and improving the safety of all roadway users remains a priority.

In 2013 Minneapolis Public Works analyzed nearly 3,000 reported bicyclist-motorist crashes that occurred in Minneapolis from 2000-2010. This research is documented in the report, Understanding Bicyclist-Motorist Crashes in Minneapolis.

To communicate the primary messages of the crash analysis, the City of Minneapolis worked with the City’s Bicycle Advisory Committee, MCAD Design Works, and local illustrator Bill Rebholz to create a safety campaign.

Four posters were created:

The posters can be viewed May through June 2013 on 27 bus shelters along high-crash corridors in Minneapolis. Smaller versions of the posters and other campaign components are available at many bike shops, libraries, community centers, parks, restaurants and coffee shops around town. Materials will also be distributed at several events throughout the summer.

Funding for the campaign came from the Non-Motorized Transportation Pilot Program, a Federal grant aimed at increasing bicycling and walking in Minneapolis. The City of Minneapolis would also like to thank Peace Coffee and Nice Ride Minnesota for their support.
