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.

    Downtown Bikways Volunteer Group is Back: How You Can Make Bike Connections from Downtown to S Minneapolis

    Last week, a group of volunteers met over pastries and trail mix to talk about how we can make sure downtown is a safe place to bike for all people.

    We spent time getting to know each other, learning why we each want to improve biking downtown, and - most importantly - what skills each of us brings to show the city how important it is to make these improvements. Volunteers settled on one major goal for the group: Make sure every meeting makes progress toward improving bikways in downtown.

    How are we going to do that? How can you get involved? Read on to find out.
