Last week we visited the Twin Cities. I grew up there and moved to Seattle in 1984. When I left, Minneapolis already had a great biking system. Now it is even better.
Today, there are over 50 miles of paths. But, what do you do when you are visiting and don't have a bike? Minneapolis solved that problem with "Nice Ride" bikes. You can rent these at kiosks throughout the city. What a great idea, every city should have such a system. Especially those that claim great biking like Seattle.
With bikes rented, we could travel around the lakes and take in the other features that make Minneapolis an enjoyable city.
