Why not try something new? Bike Walk Week wants you! Travel a different way June 2-10.
Put a little joy into your travel trip –try biking and walking. Organizers of the annual Twin Cities Bike Walk Week are asking for your pledge to replace at least one car trip with biking or walking during this year’s Bike Walk Week, June 2-10, 2012, in hopes that you’ll develop a new, more active routine for getting around. Even if you already bike or walk to get around, please sign up and be counted!
Last year more than 10,000 people took the Bike Walk Week pledge, choosing active transportation over car travel. They discovered the benefits –such as better health, money saved, and a healthier environment. Join them this year for Bike Walk Week events.
Bike Walk Week is a collaborative effort brought to you by: Anoka County Commute Solutions, Bike Walk Twin Cities, Bicycle Alliance of MN, Commuter Connection, Commuter Services, Midtown Greenway Coalition, Minneapolis Bike Walk Ambassadors, Metro Transit, St Paul Smart Trips, and Transit for Livable Communities and many other regional partners.

The No Name is a monthly standing alleycat race. Sam brought the race concept from Milwaukee, where it was originally meant for shop employees to get a chance to be able to participate in events. We meet up on the first Sunday of each month (with a few rare exceptions) at the bandshell near the North/East end of the Stone Arch Bridge. The race varies, as each month the prior month’s winner organizes the race. It’s typically a manifest of unmanned stops in Minneapolis with the occasional jaunt into St. Paul, with mileage running anywhere from 10-35 miles. The longer races are usually when the weather is nicer. It’s a very noob-friendly race, and has served as the training ground for many of the Cities’ best street racers. It’s a great place to learn how to ride and run an alleycat. Other traditions include the winner-take-all pool (usually followed by the winner-spend-all on beer), random prizes, and no-spandex attitude. Meetup at 6:30, Manifests at 6:45, Race at 7. Recommended equipment: bike, lock, pen, helmet, lights, map. …More info
