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

  • Pedestrian Bumpouts and Pop-Up Bikeways Help us Imagine City in a New Way


    Open Streets Minneapolis season begins in June and brings us all the way into October. In these five months the City of Minneapolis is given the unique opportunity to envision our streets in a whole new way: without motorized vehicles and with pedestrians, bicyclists, skaters, local vendors, artists, and many more. For one glorious day, a typically busy and chaotic street is filled with chalk, bubbles, and free movement of people; it’s the one day a year that communities can see their streets in a whole new way.

    Reflecting on a week of tragic shootings

    This week we are rocked and mourning like everyone from the tragic deaths of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, police officers in Dallas, and two-year-old Le’Vonte Jones in Minneapolis. This comes on the heels of the Pulse shooting in Orlando just a few weeks ago. It's been a hard month. These impact all of us, but especially queer and Latinx community members, black community members, Muslim community members facing increasing Islamophobia, and police officers.
