Walking and Biking Through Minnesota Winters

On December 4, 2009, Transit for Livable Communities and Bike Walk Twin Cities hosted a course to highlight and explore best local, national and international practices for encouraging year-round non-motorized (walking and cycling) transportation. The course included specific exploration of design, maintenance, and operations practices in similar winter climates, and was convened as a starting point for upcoming conversations exploring improvements to our year-round walking and cycling infrastructure and maintenance practices.

Our next event will be a breakfast "panel of experts" discussion featuring the three supervisors responsible for the case studies of Module 3: Doug Lauer (University of Minnesota), Paul Saint Martin (Saint Paul Public Works), and Mike Schmidt (Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board). Time and place are not finalized yet, but watch for an announcement soon ...
