Bike Pic March 4, ice cream smiles Friday!

If you can find him while riding your bike, the Gelato Guy can make a ride on a hot day a cool treat, even if the Italian Ice is denser than our local ice cream varieties.. Photo was shot at Open Streets 2015 in Minneapolis, here is the 2016 schedule.

Bike Pic – Sept. 30, Open Streets Minneapolis

A perfect day for the first Open Streets MPLS

As Minneapolis creates a series of bike/walk events for 2015, the doors were open to clear skies and perfect temperatures this last Sunday, June 7th, for the first Open Streets of the year. With several miles of Lyndale Avenue closed off in South Minneapolis, the street was car-free and available for residents and visitors of all ages to walk, bike or skateboard while participating in many of the spontaneous play activities, clinics, food and music being offered.

Except for some of the main intersections that crossed Lyndale Ave the MPLS Open Streets was car-free.
