30-day biking challenge begins April 1

Members of the Twin Cities biking community hope its 30 Days of Biking challenge will inspire infrequent riders and non-cyclists to adopt more active lifestyles and enjoy the benefits of bicycling.

The challenge asks folks to bike somewhere — whether around the block, running an errand or commuting to work — every day for 30 days and then share their biking thoughts online. This is the third year that the group has offered the challenge to advocate for daily bicycling and its ability to enrich lives and help the environment.

The group’s Year Three Kickoff event is set for noon, Sunday, April 1 at Gold Medal Park, Minneapolis. The communal ride through Minneapolis will be followed by social time at the park.

In 2010, more than 500 people signed up; in 2011, more than 2,000 folks registered. If you’d like to sign up or just learn more, visit the group’s website at http://30daysofbiking.com/.
