Hennepin Avenue Bike Lane Funeral
Thursday, August 6, 2009
6:00pm - 8:00pm
Gateway Park, Hennepin Avenue at 2nd Street NRSVP here

"We’re about to say good-bye to the Hennepin Avenue Bike Lanes as we know them. Minneapolis Public Works will be sealcoating the roadway to obliterate the old pavement markings this Friday or Saturday. While temporary pavement markings will delineate the lanes until October, this is the beginning of the end my friends, to those old stalwarts on the Hennepin Avenue pavement.
We’ll start with a eulogy/service at Gateway Park, then we’ll have a slow procession on bicycles down Hennepin Avenue (bring a headlight, please). Afterward, we’ll have a happy/sad/indifferent hour at Mackenzie’s (918 Hennepin). Bring a story or something to say about the bike lanes. You love ‘em, you hate ‘em, or maybe you just want to attend a funeral for an inanimate object. All are welcome.”
