Word on the Streets

Cedar Lake Trail - The Final Mile

Cedar Lake Trail - The Final Mile from myhyggelig on Vimeo.

I wanted to become part of the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition so I can continue to help to give back to members of this community, what bicycling improvements in this City have given to me.

When we moved here nearly five years ago, we wanted to live in a neighborhood with bike paths close to our home.  Our wish didn't come true ~ at first.  Then things started to change, and so did my life - all for the better.

In the time we have lived in NE Minneapolis, the accessibility we have to bike paths has continued to grow, improved my quality of life because I can hop on my bicycle at my home and go, and provided easier access for me to get through the city safely and (mostly) efficiently.

First came the completion of the Minneapolis Diagonal Trail - my main access point every time I leave home on my bicycle.

Then came the extension of the Grand Rounds Bicycle Path System  - the Saint Anthony Parkway bicycle path.

And now, I happily welcome the completion of the final mile of the Cedar Lake Trail.

What bicycle improvements have you seen in Minneapolis and how have they positively affected your life?

Minneapolis Treasures - Stone Arch Bridge

In honor of the Stone Arch Festival this weekend, I share with you a bicyclist's tribute to this Minneapolis Treasure.  The Stone Arch Bridge is absolutely one of my favorite places to slowly pedal my bicycle in this City (as well as a vital connecting link for cyclists to downtown).  How about you?
