On Sunday June 4th, from 11 AM to 5 PM, Lyndale Avenue will be temporarily closed to motorized vehicles and transformed into a bustling, colorful community space for folks to explore their neighborhood and local businesses while engaging with their public spaces in a completely different way.
Open Streets Lyndale is in its 7th year and we’re excited to announce that we’ve extended the route!
You can now enjoy 4 miles of family friendly fun on the street all the way from the Wedge Co-op on 22nd down past Minnehaha Creek to 54th Street.Read more
On May 6, we celebrated Women and Gender Non-conforming riders with a themed day of fun events as part of Minneapolis Bike Month.
Why is it important to create spaces and events for Women and Gender Non-conforming riders?

Based on counts that recognize "men" and "women," we know that out of all of the people who ride their bikes in Minneapolis, about 41% are women. (Even though there is a gender gap between men and women who bike, the national average is only 24% of women!)
