Minneapolis Bike Week is kicking off with activities everyone can enjoy and this year’s event has been re-branded. Now, it’s not just about commuting to work on your bike, it’s about making biking a part of your everyday life.
Minnesota has been ranked the second most bicycle-friendly state in the United States, the League of American Bicyclists announced Thursday. With nearly half of Minnesotans riding a bike last year, it’s not surprising Minnesota has been ranked within the top five since 2008.
With more than 30,000 miles of trails in Minnesota, you can cover a lot of ground on two wheels. Many bikers, though, go for a bigger challenge by getting away from the pavement.
What’s Minnesota’s best bike trail? WCCO viewers voted and the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike and State Trail, located near Brainerd, came out on top. “When you’re on the mountain bike trails and you come around a corner on one of those trails and there’s this mine lake down below — crystal clear blue that looks like the Caribbean — I mean it’s so spectacular,” Jenny Smith said.
Minnesota is home to some of the best cycling and art communities in the world…and this weekend, the two combine.

The bike I spotted today is cool for several reasons. So cool it turned me into a bit of a bike commute stalker (with good intentions). As I rode across the Lyndale Avenue pedestrian bridge I saw a man carrying his son on a Workcycle Bakfeit. Never heard of one? Neither had I until a few months ago…
I’ve mapped the various routes I could take between work and home and it appears the lake paths will add about a mile on each leg of my trip. A longer commute is not something I consider to be a perk of my personal commuter challenge. So there’s my dilemma: scenic or straight forward?
