Minneapolis and St. Paul made Sherman's Travel’s recent list of the country’s top 10 places for bicycling.
“The Twin Cities emergence as a bike-friendly superstar coincided with a general plan to make the area more livable,” the story states.
The story points to the Nice Ride bike-sharing program, and to bike-themed events that happen frequently here.
Just last year, the city of Minneapolis added 37 miles of bikeways, installed hundreds of bike-specific street signs, and created a citywide bike map for the first time, the story states.
Bill Dossett, who heads Nice Ride, is quoted saying, “All of these things are happening at the same time that we’ve made this great investment in the last five years,” adding, “You bring all of that together and I think our future is very bright.”
