Following the inaugural Open Streets Minneapolis event in June of 2011, Minneapolis residents will have another opportunity to explore and enjoy their neighborhood streets without the presence of motorized traffic on June 10th, 2012. Open Streets events (based on the Ciclovía from Bogotá, Colombia) bring together families and neighbors to bike, walk, socialize, play and shop in their communities in a safe, car-free environment.
This year—through lots of hard work and coordination—Open Streets Minneapolis will be two hours longer! Enjoy your completely transformed neighborhood street for six hours! The Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition covers all costs for police, barricades, and permits to ensure that Open Streets events are free to all participants and require no registration.
Lyndale Avenue South has already begun to show indications that Open Streets is near.
The complementary events are about finalized.
