Bicycling on a Bike Trail

Minneapolis is one of the most bicycle-friendly areas in the United States. The recent installation of bicycle lanes on every through street in Minneapolis is testament to that fact. The entire Twin Cities has convenient bike lanes on the major thoroughfares and around the lakes, and the region offers a host of bike trails for the avid bicyclist. Bike rental services abound, including Nice Bike, the bike sharing service with many locations around the metro area.
