Statewide Bicycle System Plan

Public workshops

We're holding workshops around Minnesota in April and May. All are welcome. Kid-friendly activities will be provided and resources will be available about biking basics.

Workshops will include a brief project overview and a series of facilitated activities so we can ask things like:

  • Where do you feel comfortable biking?
  • What destinations do you want to reach by bicycle?
  • What highways affect your biking experience?
  • How should MnDOT prioritize its biking improvements?

Workshop dates and locations

All workshops will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. and attendees should plan to stay the entire time. There will also be a community open house from 6 to 7 p.m., where people can come and go.
