Safe and scenic riding on the Plymouth Avenue Bridge

After another successful Open Streets on Lowry Avenue North this weekend, I decided to try out the recently reopened Plymouth Avenue Bridge. It was splendid. The bike lanes were safe and spacious, thanks to the white plastic delineators separating the bike lane from car traffic. The view was breathtaking. Wouldn't it be great if there were more protected bikeways in Minneapolis?

And just on the east side of the Mississippi River, there's a path that winds south through Boom Island and Nicollet Island. It's great that this safe, scenic route is now accessible from the North Side.
