Riders exercise before the bike ride in Atlanta

Bike and Walk

Join fellow lawmakers and legislative staffers for fun and exercise at one of these two events.

NCSL Bipartisan Bike Ride 2014

Join conference attendees on a picturesque ride through Minneapolis, touted by Bicycling Magazine as the nation’s No. 1 bicycle city, during the 10th annual NCSL Bipartisan Bike Ride. The ride is an excellent opportunity to chat with colleagues and see the sights of the city at a leisurely 10 mph. The Bipartisan Bike Ride is a collaboration between NCSL and BikeTexas. Mark your calendar for Friday, Aug. 22, from 6:30-8 a.m.

Bikes, helmets, water and riding tips will be provided by BikeTexas. Dress comfortably. All skill levels and ages are welcome to join this guided ride. Coffee and healthy breakfast snacks will be provided.

Pre-registration is required, with priority given to legislators and their immediate family, followed by legislative staffers. Space is limited! 


The 10th annual Bipartisan Bike Ride is generously sponsored by Walmart, American Society of Civil Engineers, BNSF Railway, General Mills, Primal Wear, People for Bikes, Siemens and Quality Bicycle Products.

The ride is a joint collaboration between NCSL, BikeTexas and the Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota.
