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.

    Bicycle Connectors: B.R.A.V.E. Foundation Inc.

    In 2018 Our Streets Minneapolis launched the Bicycle Connectors program, a new initiative to encourage more black women, indigenous women, and women of color to bike for transportation. Cindy Vue, our Bicycle Encouragement and Volunteer Coordinator, partnered with six local organizations serving black women, indigenous women, and women of color in Minneapolis.

    Each organization received support from Our Streets Minneapolis to create their own unique program to encourage more of the women they serve to bike for transportation. Funding for the Bicycle Connectors program is provided in part through travel demand management funds awarded by the Metropolitan Council and administered by Metro Transit.

    One organization we partnered with was B.R.A.V.E. (Brilliant Resilient Ambitious Vibrant Elite) Foundation Inc.
