25 Bicycle Tours in the Twin Cities and Southeastern Minnesota
Paperback      ISBN: 0881504084
A touring guide to one of the finest cycling areas in the Midwest--a land of gently rolling hills, lakes and rivers, quiet roads, and historic bike trails. Minnesota, and especially the Twin Cities region, has developed an extensive network of bike paths around its lakes and along rivers--and for good reason. Cycling is one of the favorite pastimes in a state where the land is mostly flat and long winters give way to spectacular summers. With this latest addition to our well-established series, cyclists have a valuable guide to the most interesting and scenic of these urban bike paths and country roads. Included in these 25 tours is a long ride along the Root River Tail in the historic Bluffs Country of southeastern Minnesota; a four-lakes loop through Minneapolis; a gastronomic pedal through Spamtown, USA; an exploration of Mantorville, where nearly all the buildings are on the Historic Register; and a tour retracing an escape route of the infamous Jesse James gang. The tours range from 10 to 60 miles in length, from flat and urban to hilly and remote. Included with each tour is a detailed map, total mileage, complete mile-by-mile directions, and information on nearby points of interest.
