After a two-year hiatus, the biggest bike-to-work breakfast celebrating Bike Walk Week in the Twin Cities is back! The Minnesota Environmental Fund, a workplace giving program for Minnesota-based environmental organizations, is sponsoring the resurrected event along with the tenants of the Greenway building that had organized the event from 2008-2010. The event will provide a free breakfast for bikers and walkers. Mayor R. T. Rybak and many other elected officials will join us.

For breakfast we will be serving pancakes, eggs, oatmeal, yogurt and muesli, granola bars, and Peace Coffee and juice. We are expecting between 300 and 500 (or more) walkers and bikers. The HUB bike co-op is also offering a free bike check clinic and handing out free bike patch kits. Additionally, Eureka Recycling will be working with us to compost and make this a zero-waste event.

This event is sponsored by Minnesota Environmental Fund (MEF) and Co-Sponsored by: Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs), Civia, Energy Center of Wisconsin, Envision Minnesota, Eureka Recycling, Great Plains Institute, Headwaters Foundation, Midtown Greenway Coalition, Nonprofits Assistance Fund, Peace Coffee, SOS Building Services, Inc., The Energy Conservatory, Wellington Management, Will Steger Foundation
