Advocating for people who bike and walk, on March 14th, is Minnesota’s Bike/Walk Summit, in St Paul. One of the most important events, the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota (BikeMN) needs your help at the Bike/Walk Summit. If you live in Minnesota, your presence is requested to help educate the elected leaders about the State’s bicycling issues and pedestrian needs.
The MN Bike Walk Summit is an opportunity for bicyclists, pedestrians, transit, and active transportation advocates to discuss policy priorities with elected leaders and each other. This in-person event will focus on learning and lobbying for active transportation-related issues, so come prepared to engage in meaningful dialogue.
