National Bike Month and Bike to Work Week
May has taken us from winter to summer, just in time for National Bike Month and Bike to Work Week, May 13-17.
“Minneapolis, because of its fine roads, is an especially fine town for bicycles. The country is level, and for a person who gets but little exercise the bike is just the thing.” From The Minneapolis Tribune, April 26, 1903.
There are various opportunities to get your bike out on those fine Minneapolis roads. Take a historic Minneapolis tour by bike, or travel through time with these Minneapolis bicycle photos. Preserve Minneapolis will also be rolling out historic bicycle tours for the summer. Pictured above is Mrs. Bradshaw of the Minneapolis Junior League taking a Girl Scout troop on a bicycle hike at Lake of the Isles on September 1, 1947.
