Second Open Streets Minneapolis Heads to Central Ave. N.E.

Open Streets MPLS continues this Sunday with their second Open Streets event on Central Ave. N.E. July  28th.  Open Streets MPLS is an initiative of the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition and is based on the weekly Ciclovía 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.  With the success of two Open Streets events last year, 2013 will bring the fun to four Minneapolis neighborhoods.
