This couple found Open Streets Minneapolis fun and inviting this summer.

Bic Pic Oct 5, Open Streets Minneapolis was fun and inviting

This couple found Open Streets Minneapolis fun and inviting. A Twin City community activity in its sixth year, the event covered eight Minneapolis locations through the 2016 summer bringing together community groups and local businesses. Temporarily closing major thoroughfares to car traffic and open them up for people walking, biking, skating, and playing to enjoy the streets.

With the leaves turning and perfect weather today, we hope you get out on your bike and enjoy a fall ride in Minnesota. See many more bike friendly places to explore in the new Minnesota Bike/Hike Guide.
