Bike to the Twins Game in 2009

ABC Ramps and the Minnesota Twins are teaming up again this year to bring a series of Bike to the Twins Game events throughout the 2009 season.  Free secure bike corral parking and $5 off select Twins tickets will be available the following games:

Sunday, June 21 – 1:10 p.m. vs. Houston Astros

Sunday, August 16 – 1:10 p.m. vs. Cleveland Indians
Sunday, September 13 – 1:10 p.m. vs. Oakland Athletics

“We want to offer a fun, inexpensive family event and encourage Twins fans to ride their bikes to a game, said Lisa Austin, ABC Parking Ramps Coordinator. “The new ballpark will have convenient access to bicycle trails and lanes, and ABC Ramps is looking at the best possible solutions to accommodate fans seeking alternate ways of getting to a game.”

Bike parking will be available in a secured bike corral located on the corner of Park Avenue and 4th Street, in front of the Metrodome Plaza. The bike corral will open one hour before the game starts and will close a half hour after the game ends. 

Participants will be eligible to receive $5 off a lower reserved or upper club ticket the day of the event at the Metrodome Box Office (while supplies last).  In order to receive the special ticket offer, a valid voucher must be provided. Vouchers will be available in the bike corral the day of the event.  

ABC Ramps are located in the downtown Minneapolis warehouse district. With direct access to Interstates 394 and 94 and the skyway system, ABC Ramps are multi-modal facilities and an ideal parking solution for downtown Minneapolis commuters. The ramps provide secure, convenient and affordable parking options for cars, motorcycles, scooters and non-motorized bicycles.  For more information, visit
