Minneapolis Bike Master Plan is currently open for comments. The comment period closes on October 1, 2010. The Plan is the master document that will govern all-things bicycle related in Minneapolis for probably the next 10 years, so this is worth taking the time to get right, and with the resurgence of cycling we are currently seeing, and the level of attention that the city is paying to bike issues, this will be a very formative document for the future of cycling, so please, if you care at all, take the time to read and comment. Details on how to do so are provided in the above link. I have downloaded the whole thing and will be tacking this on my rapidly-approaching vacation.
Also, we will be staging another 3-speed ride on Sunday, September 5. The meet-up for this ride will be at 10:00 AM at Trotter's Cafe, which is located on Cleveland Ave. just south of Marshal in St. Paul. I believe that the Gentleman Cyclist list has been advised of this happening as well, so we might have a few more people coming along this time as well. The game plan will be a meander of the neighborhoods south of Marshal between the Cathedral and Cleveland. We almost bought a house over there when we came back from ANC, so I'll be curious to ride around and see what we missed.
It's hard to believe that summer is drawing to a close so soon. Make the most of the weeks and months we have left, friends!! I am about to do that myself...
