Minneapolis deserves its reputation as a top bike friendly city. The Grand Rounds is a huge loop that circles the city and provides a good over view of this beautiful community.

The Grand Rounds is without a doubt a gem in the twin cities for outdoor recreation. I circumvent the entire route several times a year. Great places to people watch, stop for a snack, and just experience Minneapolis!

The Grand Rounds is a series of connected parkways (real parkways-- not those freeways they call parkways out east. These are 25 mph, mostly two lane, some one-way, through parks) around most of the city's lakes, along Minnehaha Creek and along the Mississippi River. Separate...More

really nice trail system, signs everywhere, fun places to stop for a snack or coffee or cold beverage. Trails are really crowded on warm summer afternoons, go earlier if you want to avoid the crowds.
