Using bikes to attract businesses in Minneapolis

| No Comments

Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak said in a report by MinnPost that the city is using biking infrastructure to attract new businesses and young workers.
According to the report, young professionals are increasingly moving to cities and are more likely to spend money on new technology and expensive bicycles than cars.
This talented pool of the younger generation is exactly who companies are now looking to hire.
Mayor R.T. Rybak told MinnPost that is part of the reason behind why Minneapolis has invested more in biking over the last several years.
Minneapolis consistently is ranked among the best cities for biking in the U.S., with over 180 miles of bike trails so far and double that planned.
The article goes on to describe how other cities are also investing in biking infrastructure with the same intents and purposes.
"We want young talent to come here and stay. And good biking is one of the least expensive ways to send that message," said the mayor to MinnPost.
