Open Streets Minneapolis-Lyndale Ave. S. is First of Four This Summer

Open Streets MPLS kicks off the beginning of Summer with the first of four Open Streets events on Lyndale Ave. S. Sunday, June 23rd.  Open Streets MPLS is an initiative of the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition and is based on the weekly CiclovĂ­a of Bogotá, Colombia where city streets are closed to automobile traffic in favor of cyclists, pedestrians, skaters and any other form of non-motorized transportation.  This is a free event that will have a variety of activities for the whole family including Zumba, yoga, games, music and shopping at local businesses.  After two successful Open Streets on Lyndale Ave. S, this year is sure to be bigger and better than ever.
