30 Days of Biking begins with massive group ride

The annual two-wheeled celebration 30 Days of Biking kicked off Saturday at Gold Medal Park in downtown Minneapolis. With a series of events throughout April, participants pledging to take their bikes out for daily spins this month help raise money for bicycle advocacy group World Bicycle Relief. Saturday's rally and 8-mile ride around Minneapolis drew riders of all ages. All photos by Emmet Kowler on April 2, 2016.
