As a west coast transplant living in the Twin Cities, I’m always amazed by how great Minnesota is. Truth be told, my incorrect assumptions about Minnesota pre-relocation probably has a lot to do with people on the coasts referring to the middle of the country as “the fly-over states.”
I love riding my bike, and the Cities has a ton of bike trails. Minneapolis was named the most bike-friendly city in the country by Bicycle Magazine, beating out Portland, OR, and Boulder, CO. And Minnesota has more bike trails than any other state.
I just found this great video by Pedal Minnesota that highlights some great biking across the state.
