The Cycling Museum of Minnesota is seeking applicants to our Board of Directors. Founded in 2014, CMM is an emerging museum located in Minneapolis. Our mission is to be a hub for unlocking the transformative role of bicycles. Our vision is that our work will lead people to better understand the foundational and continual influence of cycling and cyclists on our past, present, and future.

As we leave behind our start-up years, our most pressing needs will be to establish a firmer financial base, hire staff, and develop plans for program expansion. Board Members will have the opportunity to work with a committed, ambitious volunteer team in a community excited about CMM’s potential.
