Ride Boldly!

Bikes, bicycling, and road safety.

Happy Exceptions

In Minnesota, bicycles are considered vehicles, and thus subject to vehicular code.

That is, save in two cases of which I am aware.

First, on a sidewalk (where permitted) or in a crosswalk, a bicycle becomes a special sort of pedestrian.

Second, all those state and county parks that have vehicle permit requirements? Not for bikes! Yahoooo! Thus, the ability to ride over to the Coon Rapids Dam without paying the nice ranger at the gate.
