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

Motorists are increasingly aware of their obligation to share streets and roadways. Still, car-vs-bike collisions and other bicycle crashes are far too common.

    Do you know what to do if you're involved in a crash?
