Twin Cities Bike Map 10th Edition

It took over a year of research, primarily by bike, and hundreds of hours of work in our new GIS software, but the results are worth every minute of effort.

Here are some highlights from the new Twin Cities Bike Map.

* Expanded urban detail: The 10th edition extends south to cover most of Bloomington and east to the river crossing between South St. Paul and Newport.
* All new research: New and expanded trails in Apple Valley, Shakopee, Rosemount, Eden Prairie, Maplewood, Woodbury, Cottage Grove and Hastings. New on road routes everywhere
* New design: Bike Trails, busy bike routes, the LRT and North Star Commuter Rail lines, background colors and more have been re-designed for a cleaner, more readable look.

What hasn’t changed is the attention to accuracy and detail, the tear and water resistant paper and the price.

The maps are on their way to bike dealers and book stores now. Stop by soon and ask to look at the new Twin Cities Bike Map. You can also buy the maps directly from Bikeverywhere.com.

    Looking for the best route to get from Roseville across into Wisconsin—-bike riding to Cumberland Wisconsin. Any suggestions for the best route?

    Thanks

    Depending on where you start from, I suggest going east along County Hwy C from Gervais Lake to 1st St. Go south and cross Hwy 36 on the bike trail. From there you will hook up with the Gateway Trail. Take the Gateway to the end, then left on Norell, right on Square Lake Trail, left on Norell, right on 170th, left on Olinda Trail. Everything to this point is on the Twin Cities Bike Map.

    Olinda Trail (Cty Rd 3) goes north through Scandia to Panola Dr (Cty Rd 86). Turn right and go east to Hwy 95. Left on 95 to Osceola Rd (Hwy 243). Turn right. This will take you across the St. Croix River into Wisconsin. You have a number of road options from here, but your goal is to reach the Gandy Dancer Trail in St. Croix Falls. The trail is crushed limestone. It can be ridden with road tires, but if you prefer pavement, most roads in this area are paved, even the smaller town roads.

    My knowledge of this area is weak, but I would suggest riding north to Centuria, then taking back roads east to Cumberland.
