Join Move Minneapolis on the morning of Thursday, May 16 on one of several rides to Commons Park in downtown to Celebrate Bike Week. Meet-ups and rides will be coming in from several locations to join the event by 9:00 a.m. Bike racks and free valet bike parking will be available.

Riding In From Northeast Minneapolis:

This casual bike ride from NE Minneapolis is 4.7 miles into downtown Minneapolis starting on the Great Northern Greenway trail! We will meet at 7:45 a.m. at the intersection of Central Ave NE & 18th Ave NE, and roll out by 8:15 a.m. The ride travels west on the Great Northern Greenway on a (mostly) dedicated bikeway to the East Mississippi trail and then turns south along the river to the Plymouth Ave Bridge. The route crosses the Mississippi River and leads south on the West River Road trail until Portland Ave S. Turn right on Portland Ave S and ride three block on an on-street bike lane to Commons Park.

Please note that there is no organized ride back to NE Minneapolis. Stop by the Move Minneapolis tent at the Downtown event to discuss route options back to NE or to another destination!
