***The Northeast Ride is a fundraiser to benefit the Northeast CDC, which supports the arts, community, and economic development of Northeast Minneapolis***
The Northeast Ride, slated for June 14, 2014, will take cyclists on a tour of NE Minneapolis, stopping at the neighborhoods’ parks. The ride will also take participants through the Arts District, touring past the great Northeast creative buildings and historical landmarks like the Casket Arts Building and the Grain Belt Brewery, while using some of the new bike trails and bikeways.
The ride is approximately 12 miles and will visit each neighborhood of NE Minneapolis. We’ll be starting at 10am at the Northeast Minneapolis Armory, located on Broadway Avenue. The route is designed to be family-friendly and accessible for riders of all levels of experience. Each registered rider will be sent event information and at event day check-in everyone will be given a map of the route and a goody bag courtesy of our sponsors! We’ll continue to update the site via our blog to make sure everyone has the information they need to have a great time on ride day.
On ride day, please bring a bike lock, your helmet and other safety equipment–and a smile :-)
The event is being organized by the Northeast CDC, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization created to serve the NE Minneapolis area. The Northeast CDC works to promote the economic development of NE Minneapolis in a manner that furthers the interests of residents and businesses.
