Biking in Minneapolis

The latter is less interesting for urban cycling, but Minneapolis is quickly becoming the go-to city in America for building infrastructure. The City of Minneapolis helps those who live and work in the city use bicycles as a safe, healthy and low-cost way to travel. It’s no wonder that despite scorching summers and subzero winters, thousands of locals bike the city for commuting and recreation year-round.
