When/Where... Thursday, April 26 from 12:15 - 1:00 p.m. on-street demonstration on 6th St. SE west of 25th Ave. (street will be closed to thru traffic), U of M East Bank

Drivers of large vehicles and bicyclists share the road every day but rarely get an opportunity to see the road through each others eyes.

In this special demonstration event, bicyclists & pedestrians will be able to get behind the wheel of a big rig or bus, sit in the driver's seat, and check blind spots while bikes & pedestrians walk in the street below.

"Share the Road" safety information will be available to all participants.

Thanks in advance for helping us make the University of Minnesota campus a safer place for all!
