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



  • Solid Steps Toward a Safer Intersection Reconstruction

    If you have been following our work in the past few months, you are aware that we have been doing extra engagement and work around the Franklin/Cedar/Minnehaha intersection redesign. The intersection is currently the second most dangerous in the City of Minneapolis and stands to have more than two and half times the “critical rate” of accidents.

    Public engagement by various organizations around this intersection redesign has been going on for well over 15 years- preliminary plans, public meetings, Open Streets discussions, surveys, and more. Finally! A relatively victorious conclusion for bikers, pedestrians, and drivers has been reached. Many thanks to Hennepin County for holding public meetings; and to community members, local business owners, and other stakeholders for attending the most recent meetings, giving feedback, and passing a resolution for a better intersection!

    Recommendations for Franklin/Cedar/Minnehaha Redesign: Take Action

    satellite-cedar-franklin-minnnehaha-scaled.jpgThis past month, Hennepin County has hosted several community engagement meetings around the 2016 Redesign of the Franklin/Cedar/Minnehaha Intersection. The last of the meetings is tonight, February 9th, at 7PM (Open House begins at 6:30PM located at Matthews Recreation Center in Seward), if you have not attended a meeting and would still like to give feedback, it is strongly encouraged that you attend this one. Thank you to all of the community members, residents, local businesses, and other stakeholders that came out and supported making the intersection safer for everyone.

    The County has done a good job of crafting up a safer intersection than the one that currently exists, but we see the potential for additions and changes that will make the redesign safer for all modes of transportation- particularly cyclists and pedestrians.
