Imagine your dream neighborhood, workplace, or community here in Minnesota. Does it have protected bike lanes, wide sidewalks, safe crossings, a connected trail system, and streets that are safe for everyone? Ours do too.
Here in Minnesota, we’re on the verge of the unstoppable rise of walking and bicycling for health, transportation, and happiness. Over the past year, we released Minnesota Walks, hosted the National Walking Summit, and were named the second most bike friendly state. You’ve started something big – and we want to see it get even bigger.
That’s why the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota and the Minnesota Departments of Tourism, Health, Natural Resources, and Transportation are coming together to host the first-ever Bike+Walk Minnesota Conference, and we want you to be a part of it.
The Bike+Walk Minnesota Conference is the next generation of Pedal Minnesota, the former statewide bicycle tourism conference. It is a multidisciplinary conversation about the intersection of active transportation, community development, inequities, and advocacy. Professionals and advocates from across Minnesota will come together April 29 to May 1, 2018 in Rochester to explore connections between biking and walking, discuss how communities are creating better public spaces for all, and address the open-ended question of what comes next.
You’ve already shown that you’re committed to making Minnesota a place where everyone can walk and bike for transportation, health, and fun. Which is why we want your support. Please review the sponsorship details above to see how your organization can best get involved in this important next step for walking and bicycling in Minnesota.
