Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition
Some Minneapolis streets took part in the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition’s event ‘Open Streets’ Saturday. The Open Streets event is run by volunteers with the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition. For one weekend day during the summer, a city street is transformed into a car-free space.
A group of bicyclists want a protected bike lane on a busy road in Minneapolis. Minnehaha Avenue is set for reconstruction in 2015. Many in the local biking community would like to see a lane that physically separates them from both pedestrians and car traffic – a lane called a “cycle track.” For people who bike along Minnehaha, getting from point A to point B is a challenge. Nicole Nafziger knows firsthand how being so close to traffic can make for a scary experience when riding in the bike lane.
Select parking meter posts throughout Minneapolis will be fitted with bike racks in an effort to decrease sidewalk clutter.
The Minneapolis bicycling community honored a cyclist who was killed on his way to synagogue.
