Bikeway Grand Openings Tonight and Tomorrow

We received this from the City of Minneapolis, and though that we would pass it along:

Two grand opening events for new bikeways will be held this week. The first Downtown event will take place tomorrow, Wednesday, October 5th at 4:30pm. Meet in Loring Park at the corner of 15th Street and Willow Street. A group ride will take you along new bike lanes on 14th, 15th, and 16th Streets, as well as on the new Hiawatha Trail Connection. Project features include advisory bike lanes, a Euro-style left turn for bikes, and a rapid flash crosswalk. For more information visit the project opening website.

The second Northeast event will take place on Thursday, October 6th at 4pm. Meet in Holmes Park on 5th Street SE between 2nd and 4th Avenues SE. A group ride will take you along new bike boulevards on 5th Street NE and 22nd Avenue NE. Project features include Minnesota’s first bicycle stoplight, miniature traffic circles, and new bicycle shortcuts through traffic diverters.
