Relatively speaking, 50 years is a really long time. Yet, according to the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition, if this opportunity to add bike friendly features to Penn Ave S is missed, we won’t have another shot until 2062.
Show your support to help make Penn ave from 50th Street to Highway 62 a bike friendly place to be. Here is the information from the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition.
What: Public meeting on Penn Avenue South reconstruction between 50th Street and Hwy 62
What’s at stake: Potential bike path on Penn Avenue South between 50th Street and Hwy 62
When: Tuesday, March 6 at 6pm (see below for contact info if you can’t make the meeting)
Where: Armatage Recreation Center (2500 57th Street West)
Why: Bicycle supporters are needed to support the path.
