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.

 

Our organization was founded as the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition. Read more about our name change here.

    New Bollard Day for 26th Street!

    The Downtown Protected Bikeways work group would like to thank the City of Minneapolis Public Works employees that recently restored the bollards to 26th Street!

    Up until a week ago, there were only thirteen plastic bollards designating the bike lane on 26th Street between Blaisdell and Lyndale as protected. On the eight block stretch of 26th Street between Lyndale and Hennepin, there was just a single bollard. Most of the missing bollards were accidentally taken out by last winter’s snowplowing, and had been missing since February. Many of our work group members had stopped riding on 26th Street as a result - 26th Street just didn’t feel protected at all any more.
