NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES | Kickstarting the Northeast Bike Ride


Kickstarter is a fun entrepreneurial website that aggregates support for local projects with energy and vision.

And Kickstarter is the aptly named online vehicle that is just one of the tools that planners are using to solicit financial support for the Northeast Ride scheduled for June 2, 2012. Goal of the Kickstarter initiative is $15,000; the site will be posted until December 5, 2011.

The Northeast  Ride will take participants through the Northeast Minneapolis Arts district, touring past historic landmarks such as the Casket Arts Buildings and the Grain Belt Brewery as well as along new trails and bikeways that wind through the neighborhoods of Northeast.

Northeast Ride is sponsored by the Northeast Community Development Corporation with the support of MPLS Bike Love, Altered Esthetics and Bicycle Theory.
