Get Around the Neighborhood on Your Bicycle
The Nokomis East Neighborhood is a safe and easy place to get around by bicycle. Many area businesses have bike racks and our part of the city is blessed with Bike Routes on the East along the River and Minnehaha Park, on the North along Minnehaha Parkway and to the West around Lake Nokomis. These all in turn link to an extensive bike system, perhaps the best in the nation. For more information on regional bike routes check out the City of Minneapolisí site: Maps & Where to Ride.
Nokomis East Bike Rack Program 2016
In an effort to create more bicycle parking for local businesses throughout the Nokomis East neighborhood the Nokomis East Business Association (NENA) and the Nokomis East Neighborhood Association (NEBA) are offering an opportunity for businesses and organizations to acquire a bike rack, or multiple bike racks, at no cost.
Using the City cost share program NENA will pay 50% of the total expenses and the City will pay 50%, leaving no costs for the business.
