Mission and Vision

Greater Mankato Bike and Walk Advocates (GMBWA) encourage individuals and families to walk and bike as part of a fun and healthy lifestyle. 

We also view biking and walking as important solutions to many environmental problems.  GMBWA works with city, county and state governments, businesses and nongovernmental organizations to improve our area communities’ infrastructure and opportunities for walking and biking.  

We support community bike education, as well as events such as Bike and Walk Month, and the River Valley 100.  GMBWA offers small grants to local groups. If you have an idea and are interested, reach out to us through the contact tab. Application form below.
