The Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition advocates for

a city where bicycling is encouraged and

everyone feels comfortable riding.

 

Enjoy, Engage, Empower

 

 

Our goal is to make Minneapolis a better place for bicycling in all corners of the city. 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

A network of protected bikeways--where people biking are separated from cars (and sidewalks) by some sort of physical barrier--will connect our world-class trail network with key destinations. It will allow everyone from 8-year old kids going to school to grandparents going to the park to feel more comfortable biking. The protected bikeway network will improve safety, saving lives and reducing traffic injuries. It will improve the health of thousands of Minneapolitans by making active transportation easier and by reducing air pollution. It will expand affordable transportation options, saving families thousands of dollars, providing easier access for people reaching jobs, and keeping more money in our local economy. It will attract people and businesses to our city. And more.



  • Grease Rag open shop at Cycles for Change

    Katherine Daugherty,a Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition volunteer, checked out a Grease Rag Open Shop for Bike Week! Here's what she had to say about the experience:

    Grease Rag open shop at Cycles for Change was an inviting and empowering experience. Tuesday nights open shop is exclusively for women, trans and femme identifying individuals and provided a safe environment to learn.

    I went into the shop to tune up my bike, even though I didn't know what that'd entail.
