Word on the Streets

What does being an MBC Member mean?


We braved the rain, sleet, snow and wind last night to have you guessed it...another meeting.  Some of us braved it a little more than the rest of us~well done!



What did we discuss?  Membership.  Yes!  We are getting ready to grow the family, but first we have to get the house in order.  We are almost there and will open the door soon for y'all to come on in.  Stay tuned.



Would you join the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition?  What are you looking for in a membership?  Why do you join other groups?


Laying Foundations


The MBC Organizational Development Committee has been hard at work laying the foundation for a successful future.  Some may not find our discussions the most riveting as our topics include government forms, taxes, and databases, but what we all are engaged in is our love for bicycling and making this an even better city for everyone to ride in.  I personally have enjoyed the opportunity to meet some really interesting people who share similar interests and are part of my community.  It is in the moments between discussions about government forms, taxes, databases, etc. that the conversation gets interesting.  We discuss our trips to San Diego and Austin, and we learn that someone in the group just moved house by bicycle!
