Bikeable, Walkable Communities

We are working in St. Cloud, Sartell and other communities to put in place complete streets policies that are designed and operated to increase safety for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities. Those policies are designed to make it easier to cross the street, walk to shops, and bicycle to work. We are also working with communities to implement master pedestrian and bicycle plans that will make it safer and easier to walk and bike to work, to school and for recreation.

Bicycle fleets

One of the keys to increasing bicycling in our communities is safety. To help increase safer bicycling, Feeling Good MN has purchased a fleet of 48 bicycles and a trailer that are used throughout the region to teach positive and safe bicycling skills. We are partnering in this effort with schools, law enforcement, city officials and businesses. Our outreach is designed to reach all ages and skill levels, and includes three-wheel bikes as well as traditional bikes.

Working with the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota, we are also offering ambassador training programs in central Minnesota communities. The program is specifically for community members, parents, and volunteers who want to lead and help out with walking and biking initiatives for youth and others in their town.
