We encourage Uptown Art Fair guests to use alternative, environmentally-friendly transportation! The My Bike Project, a non-profit organization, provides programming and resources to encourage bicycling and walking in underrepresented communities throughout the Twin Cities. The My Bike Project is a program of the Cultural Wellness Center, which exists to unleash the power of citizens to heal themselves and to build community.

As a teen and young adult-run venture, The My Bike Project remains committed to expanding bicycling and walking infrastructure that not only creates a culturally empowering lifestyle, but also introduces health engagement process into the community. The program supports a culture that normalizes bicycling and walking for transportation, recreation and health improvement in communities currently experiencing disparities in health, education, and economics.
