MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- It's Twin Cities Bike Walk Week, and commuters are being urged to walk or bike to work or the ballgame.
The week's highlight is Bike Walk to Work Day on Thursday. In Minneapolis, bikers and walkers will gather at the downtown Government Center Plaza from 6:30-9 a.m. for free food, music and prize giveaways.
Downtown St. Paul's celebration will be held at the same time at Rice Park. Bloomington will hold an after-work celebration from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday at REI Bloomington.
