    This 5.5-mile bicycle highway goes right through the center of town. It's lit at night with emergency call boxes and patrolling police and it's even plowed in the winter! Read more

    This section is characterized by bridges over the trail at every cross street!

    The trench section of the Greenway passes the Coalition Office and runs from Hennepin to Hiawatha. While generally very safe, late night users are advised to be very aware of your surroundings.

    This a super segment for skating intervals when it's windy because the path is slightly elevated and you can skate hard into the wind, rest with the wind at your back.

    The route is nearly six miles long, if you're bicycling from St. Paul, the Greenway connects with the Light Rail Trail for a quick trip into downtown. Read more

    Keep your wits about you bicycling at night. I've been jumped once near Chicago Ave, yet I defended myself. BE SAFE.

    The quickest way to get across South Mpls (5.5m), safer than riding with traffic and and a lot of fun too!

    Careful when crossing the streets, sometimes the cars miss the stop signs so don't assume...

    The longest urban bike trail in the country. This is one of the main reasons for MPLS being named the best biking city in the US. Get on two wheels and hit it!
