Bicyclists and Walkers Share Breakfast on Green Rooftop

Welcome message on the Midtown Greenway
 
For the Twin Cities Bike Walk Week, the Phillips Eco-Enerprise Center hosted a breakfast on their green rooftop, delighting even the vegans with a spread of tofu scramble, caramel rolls, breakfast burritos, pancakes, fruit, Peace Coffee, and juices.

This was the best attended bike/walk event in Minneapolis! A total of 120 people came to share breakfast and chat on the roof—116 bikers and 4 walkers. They came from as close as a half mile and as far as 26 miles! Many who were just on their way to work were brought in by a sidewalk chalk sign on the Midtown Greenway!

Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak even made the party and stayed for about a half hour, chatting with local students and others enjoying breakfast on the roof before biking down the street to South High School.

There’s already clamoring to do this again next year—and a few have suggested next WEEK!

 
Thanks so much to all of those who made this event possible—and to everyone who participated!
