Group Ride

End your Bike to Work Day on a high note with a no drop group bike ride to Art-A-Whirl festivities in Northeast Minneapolis!
We’ll gather at the Move Minneapolis tent on Government Plaza at 4:45pm to set out on a comfortably-paced, 3-ish mile route, mostly on separated bike paths, to the Bottling House (https://tinyurl.com/gbbottling). There are 3 spaces with 10+ artists in within a block, as well as food options nearby.
Continue on your Art-A-Whirl journey down 13th Avenue and beyond, or head home. We will not be leading a return group ride to Downtown so please plan accordingly.
