Local Advocacy Groups
BikeMN Chapters, Committees and Local Organizations
While most of BikeMN’s advocacy is done at the state level, we believe local politics and grassroots advocacy are some of the greatest tools to enact bicycle-friendly changes. The work that is done at the level of region, county, park district, city or neighborhoods is just as important as the high-level issues that we work on every day. Luckily, the city-level bicycle advocacy movement in Minnesota is strong and growing.
BikeMN doesn’t directly weigh in on most municipal issues; instead we empower local advocates to speak up for the needs in their own communities. This list represents many of the local Minnesota bicycling advocacy groups. If your group is not shown here, please send us an email with your contact information and we will add you to the list. If you want assistance in starting a new group, please contact us!
BikeMN Chapters have a formal relationship with BikeMN, and members can opt-in to share their membership dues with chapters to support work in local communities. There are currently nine BikeMN chapters and always more in the works! Click through to learn more about each chapter or to make a dedicated membership contribution to one.
The bigger your contribution to a BikeMN Chapter the more funding they receive for hyperlocal efforts:
50% of the proceeds for donations $0-$99
60% for donations $100-$149
70% for donations $150 and more
BikeMN Committees also have a formal relationship with BikeMN, but do not currently have the membership program. There is currently one BikeMN committee in Mankato.
