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
- St Paul Smart Trips
- Transit for Livable Communities
Thanks to our 2013 sponsors!

Snow emergency declared in Minneapolis. Remember, if you have a sidewalk adjacent to your property, it's YOUR responsibility to clear it, all of it. Help keep sidewalks clear and safe!
When it snows, make sure to clear your sidewalks of snow and ice to keep them safe and avoid a possible fine from the City. Learn more in this edition of the Minneapolis "Did you know..." series ...
Brrr! For all those that can do winter biking, kudos.
"Ah, thank god it's winter again," said no Minnesota commuter ever.Winter in the Twin Cities means at least three things for commuters: slower driving, jam-packed bus rides, and less biking. However,
As it gets colder, we tend to want to be less active. Swap out your next short trip to a walk or bike ride and enjoy the brisk fresh air!
