Join St. Paul Smart Trips on a guided group bike ride from the Como Lakeside Pavilion to the Hmongtown Marketplace Saturday, August 4th from 10 a.m. to noon. The ride will include a guided tour of the Marketplace and will showcase recent bike-friendly improvements along Como—bike lanes, bike signage and safer crosswalks—funded though Bike Walk Twin Cities.
The four-mile round-trip ride starts at the Como Lakeside Pavilion at 10 a.m. with a brief safety check and a review of the bike route. A tour guide at the Marketplace will help participants explore the flavors and culture of Southeast Asia. Experienced ride leaders will ensure that no one gets left behind—it’s a “no-drop ride.”
The group will return to the Pavilion by noon. Participants should bring cash and a bag to carry purchases. Smart Trips will bring water and snacks to keep you fueled. Free gifts to the first 20 people!
We encourage RSVPs. Email email@example.com or call 651-224-8555 #23
The bicycle and pedestrian improvements along Como are funded by Bike Walk Twin Cities, a program of Transit for Livable Communities, through the Federal Highway Administration.
St. Paul Smart Trips is a local nonprofit that works to improve access and mobility for those who travel in and around St. Paul. Working with Bike Walk Move, Smart Trips has created a map highlighting the great destinations along Como, featuring the biking, walking and transit routes to reach those destinations from the Southeast Como neighborhood in Minneapolis all the way to the Capitol. The map is available at neighborhood businesses, district council offices, coffee shops and libraries along Como.
