Winter biking in Minneapolis

Posted by Doug Shidell, December 22nd, 2008

The City of Minneapolis has been pro-active about creating a bicycle friendly city, even in the winter.  The Midtown Greenway and Light Rail Trail are plowed within 24 hours of a snowfall, often earlier, and they are usually responsive to phone calls about winter road maintenance issues that affect cyclists. To report a maintenance issue that affects you as a cyclist, call 311 in Minneapolis. If you live outside the city limits, call 612-673-3000. Or you can call a more direct line to see who is responsible for specific areas of the city and county. For a human interst side to plowing on the Midtown Greenway, check out this post by Shaun Murphy, Minneapolis Bicycle Program Intern
