The Cycling Museum of Minnesota and the Hennepin History Museum have asked me to talk about mapping Twin Cities Bike routes for the last 30 years. I’ve seen countless changes in the routes and trails, the riders and the technology of map making. I’ll talk about those changes and show sample maps from over 30 years of recording the cycling routes of the Twin Cities.

Please join me at the Hennepin History Museum on Sunday, April 24. The museum is located across the street to the north of the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Bike parking available.

Updated Milwaukee and SE Wisconsin Bike Map

Posted by Doug Shidell, March 8th , 2016.

The mobile 2016 Milwaukee and SE Wisconsin Bike Map is now available. The updated map has new trail and bike route information, better graphics to show the difference between paved and gravel trails and a cleaner overall look. You won’t find a better bike map anywhere. Download the map to your phone and take it with you wherever you go.

The map will be updated approximately 3 more times during 2016, so stop back periodically to update your map for free. If you purchased the earlier version of the map, you can get this updated version and all updates for 2016 for free.

Bike Riding in Northeast Minneapolis

Posted by Doug Shidell, March 7th , 2016.

Northeast Minneapolis has become a bicycling hotspot. The Lowry Ave Bridge offers a great crossing or destination in itself. the bridge is architecturally interesting and the view of Downtown Minneapolis is stunning. The green icon on the light at the intersection is of a bicycle. This crossing, at 5th and Broadway, has both pedestrian and bicycle crossing lights.
