Transit By bike

Minneapolis consistently ranks as one of the top bicycling cities in the nation – come see what it’s all about! This presentation will help you develop your cycling skills as a regular mode of transportation – including your trip to work. Participants will learn about riding a bicycle as a vehicle, safety, riding comfort, and good tips for getting into and around downtown – especially with the major street construction taking place. Join the thousands of fellow bicycle commuters and safely enjoy the two-wheeled ride into the city. Move Minneapolis and the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition offer basic bicycle education.
