The Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition
inspires people to bicycle and
advocates for a city where
everyone feels comfortable riding.


Enjoy, Engage, Empower


Our goal is to make Minneapolis a better place for bicycling in all corners of the city and support more people biking. The Coalition uses the joy and broad public benefits of bicycling to engage, empower, and mobilize grassroots and grasstops support for our work. The Coalition encourages participation in decision-marking processes and uses events to reach out to potential supporters. We have a track record of success that has helped lead to new bike lanes and protected bikeways, new bike parking, hiring the first-ever Minneapolis bicycle and pedestrian coordinator, and hosting Bike Week and Open Streets Minneapolis events.

We are volunteer driven and member supported

Working with our fantastic members, volunteers, and community partners, here are our priorities for bikeways and policies this year to make streets better in Minneapolis. 

Thanks to everyone who offered input in to our prioritization process--your input was very helpful and these priorities reflect what you told us should be the highest priorities--protected bikeways and work to advocate for priorities of low-income people who bicycle.

    With the demonstration being installed this summer, there is a unique and exciting opportunity to engage the community around the pop up greenway, and what their reactions are to the concept.  There are information sessions, grants for individuals wanting to do engagement, and grants for organizations.  Please read further for more information!
