This bicycle tour will explore innovations in infrastructure to support bicycling that have made Minneapolis one of the most bike-friendly cities in the United States. Participants will hop on Nice Ride bicycles near the conference hotel and explore downtown, protected bicycle lanes, the Mississippi River trails, and other features, including automated bicycle traffic counters. Participants will have the opportunity to speak with local experts and explore current issues in bicycle planning, measuring demand, bicycle safety, and equity of access to bikeways.  Participants will ride for two to three hours, depending on interests of participants and the length of time spent at stops for discussion and refreshments.
