Last Thursday the Bryant Avenue Bike Boulevard had its grand opening, and representatives from the organizations who made it possible (including the Sierra Club!) were on hand to ride down the newly redone street. The project was made possible through a grant from Bike Walk Twin Cities, after consulting with local neighborhood groups and the City of Minneapolis.

After the ribbon cutting we all rode down the length of the street, and admired the new super-sized Bike Boulevard street markings, bumpouts and medians. If you missed this opening, not to worry – there are plenty of other streets and bike projects being opened this fall; including the University of Minnesota Bike Center Grand Opening, the new downtown bike lanes grand opening, and grand openings for the lanes on Emerson, Fremont, 1st and Blaisdell!
