Join City leaders in group rides for Bike to Work Day

City of Minneapolis elected officials will be leading group rides from starting points across the city Friday morning to the Hennepin County Government Center plaza for the Twin Cities Bike to Work Day Downtown Celebration.

The celebration, scheduled for 7 a.m.-9 a.m., is part of a month of activities promoting biking in Minneapolis. Find details on events, group rides, Bike to Work Day pit stops and more at www.tcbiketoworkday.org.  

Minneapolis is one of the most bike friendly cities in the country. The City of Minneapolis helps those who live and work in the city use bicycles as a safe, healthy and low-cost way to travel. Making it safer and easier to get around our city by bicycle reduces wear and tear on our roadways, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, supports local businesses and supports community health.

The City’s Climate Action Plan has a goal of having 15 percent of commuters biking to work by 2025. Bike commuting has many benefits including less greenhouse gas pollution, less traffic congestion and health benefits for riders.

As of 2017, Minneapolis has 131 miles of on-street bikeways and 113 miles of off-street or protected bikeways. For more information about bicycling in Minneapolis, go to www.minneapolismn.gov/bicycles.

Minneapolis Bike Month and Twin Cities Bike to Work Day are presented by the City of Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Our Streets Minneapolis, Transit for Livable Communities and St. Paul Smart Trips.
