It’s Twin Cities Bike Walk Week!
June 4th – 12th is Twin Cities Bike Walk Week – and there are a lot of good reasons why you should pledge to give walking, public transportation and biking a try. Over 5 thousand of them, actually…that’s because the average American household spent more than $5,400 on gas and auto expenses last year. That’s more than we spend on groceries or utilities!
By registering for Bike Walk Week, you are pledging to make at least one trip that you would have made anyway, without the use of a car. There are going to be various fun Bike Walk Week events happening:
- June 8th – Women’s Wednesday
- June 9th – Bike Walk to Work Day (with Downtown celebrations in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Bloomington)
- June 11th – Yoga on the Greenway
- June 12th – Bike Walk to the Ballgame (the first 1,000 bicycle riders with tickets to the game will receive a free gift bag presented by OptumHealth)
