Now Hiring an Executive Director

About the Coalition

The Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition was incorporated as a nonprofit in December 2009 by a group of bicyclists who felt that more could be done to make Minneapolis safer and more attractive for bicycling, particularly by empowering more bicyclists to participate in city decision-making. We have a track record of success that has helped lead to new bike lanes, new bike parking, the hiring of the first-ever Minneapolis bicycle and pedestrian coordinator, and the hosting of the first-ever Minneapolis Open Streets event.
