ARTCRANK at the 2016 Winter Cycling Congress
The Winter Cycling Congress is coming to the United States for the first time ever, and Minneapolis — a city that knows a thing or two about cold-weather biking — will play host. The three-day event that runs February 2-4 will bring together a diverse and international group of people with a shared vision of increasing bicycling and walking among people of all ages and abilities through the winter.
Wednesday, February 3: Bike Parade & After-Party
Grab your bike and join the delegates of the Winter Cycling Congress for a 5-mile joyride along the Mississippi. The ride will assemble in the driveway in front of The Commons Hotel at 4:00 p.m., depart at 4:30 p.m., and then end at Weisman Art Museum for the after-party, which officially opens to the public at 6:00 p.m.
ARTCRANK will feature a selection of handmade, limited-edition prints celebrating year-around cycling. Photographers Hansi Johnson and Ellie Kingsbury will also have work on display. The Weisman Museum will be open during the after-party until 8:00 p.m., including the new exhibit "Clouds, Temporarily Visible," as well as "Still...Life" and "Black & White."

We’ve made changes to the way we operate to accommodate the series of new realities we’ve found ourselves in since March. We’ve also had a chance to bear down and focus on some ideas that we’ve had in the works for a long time and just hadn’t had the time to pull off. Our new site is one of them.
Afghan Cycles follows a new generation of young Afghan women who are pedaling their own revolution, aggressively challenging gender and cultural barriers using the bicycle as a literal and metaphorical vehicle for freedom, empowerment and social change.
