MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis and St. Paul already have a vibrant bicycling community, but a group of cycling enthusiasts is determined to bring more non-bikers into the fold.

They call their effort “30 Days of Biking.” The idea is to get people to ride their bikes on each of the 30 days in April.

Spokesman Kurt Stafki says non-cyclists who try it can be inspired to adopt more active lifestyles.

This is the third year the group has done it. They say they signed up more than 500 people in 2010 and more than 2,000 last year.
