Open Streets MPLS Returns With Eight Events For 2015

As the Summer biking season approaches Open Streets MPLS returns in its fifth year with eight events around the city. What started as one event in 2011 has grown into something big that gives cyclists, pedestrians, skaters and skateboarders a new way to see the city without automobile traffic.  These events provide a safe place for people to get to know these neighborhoods, do some shopping, have some fun, meet new people and it's all free.

An initiative of the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition, Open Streets MPLS has become a huge success bringing out thousands of people for these events.  Come and join the fun family atmosphere that is Open Streets in these great Minneapolis neighborhoods and see the city in a whole new way.

Local community members plan out these events and around 100 volunteers are needed for each one.  If you would like to volunteer for any of the Open Streets MPLS events, visit the Open Streets Volunteer page and fill out the sign up form.
