Transform Green Space into the Downtown Expo & Bike Week Celebration on May 15th

On Bike to Work day we'll be transforming the 7th Street Plaza into a Downtown Bike Week Expo with vendors, food trucks, music and activities.

 

Lead a Joy Ride on May 15th

Every Friday afternoon for 30 Day of Biking leading up to Bike Week, the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition has hosted a fun, slow-paced Joy Ride open to all ages and abilities. For the grand finale Joy Ride on May 15th, we'll all be meeting at Gold Medal Park for ice cream at 5:00 pm. Then, instead of all riding in one direction, there will be many rides going in all directions of the city. Plan a route, lead a ride, and help us roll out with a bang!
