Imagine a Citywide Network of Connected Bikeways ...

 ...that supports everyone from children to grandparents to feel safe riding to work, school, the grocery store, or anywhere in Minneapolis.

The Bikeways for Everyone campaign supports building 30 new miles of well-designed protected bikeways by 2020 to make an expanded citywide network. This network attracts people to our city, enhances businesses, reduces pollution, improves public health, adds new green space, and enhances quality of life.
