The 2013 annual Bike Walk Week is the week of June 9 – 15. Twin Cities residents are encouraged to join others across the country and leave the car at home and bike or walk to work. Live too far from work to bike or walk? Then mix it up by biking or walking to the bus stop or train station!
Take the pledge! All we ask is that one time during the week when you would usually drive your car, leave it behind, dust off your sneakers, and move your feet!
Don’t be afraid, leaving your car behind can be scary but we have you covered. We can help you find a buddy… or actually a few buddies with Bike Walk Week teams to help you break free from your routine. You can create your own team or join an existing team for support, encouragement, and did we mention… prizes?
Loads of prizes and giveaways will take place at events and through drawings for those that register online and in person for Bike Walk Week. Throughout the entire week, there will be Bike Walk Week events with parties, food, and entertainment for all.
The sun is out and the grass is green Minnesotans! Join your friends or co-workers on a team or go rouge and enjoy your commute on foot or two wheels.
Bike Walk Week is a collaborative effort brought to you by:
- Anoka County Commute Solutions
- Commuter Connection
- Commuter Services
- City of Minneapolis
- Metro Transit

Thanks to our 2013 sponsors!

How we move around in our world is deeply hard-wired, a new study suggests, sharing patterns that echo the movements of scavenging birds, flocking insects and gliding sharks.
