Our Streets Minneapolis works for a city where biking, walking, and rolling are easy and comfortable for everyone. 

 

 We envision a city where:

    • Biking, walking, and rolling are easy and joyful for people of all backgrounds and identities in all parts of Minneapolis;
    • Streets and trails are vibrant community spaces with people walking and biking year-round;
    • Kids and families feel safe and comfortable walking and biking to neighborhood schools, parks, and businesses;
    • Older adults and people with mobility challenges are healthy, independent, and connected with their communities through streets and sidewalks designed for them; and
    • Abundant biking and walking contributes to happy people, a healthy environment, and a strong economy.

Together with this growing trend, we’re seeing more and more Twin Cities bicyclists following suit.

    It’s become increasingly common for cyclists to use helmet-mounted or bike-mounted cameras like the GoPro when they ride. But, is this use of technology good? Are GoPros always a benefit, or is there a downside, too?
