How many miles of trails?
Tex69 asked how many miles of bike paths exist in Minneapolis/St. Paul?
I didn't know, but I recognize a good blog topic when I see one.
I spent a couple minutes researching this question. Here's what I found.
The City of Minneapolis website says 123 miles of paths already exist and 45 more are funded for construction in 2009-2010.
I'm already thinking about lunch.
St. Paul's website says they have 101 miles of paths. Neither of these figures include bike lanes and routes of which there are many.
I don't know how many miles exist in the suburbs, but there are lots of paths out there also.
A few of the paths are not very well designed or implemented, but most are very useful. My ride to work is about 10 miles. I guesstimate I can ride on bike paths for about 2/3 of my route.
We have lots of trails around here and I use them when it makes sense.
