Ride Boldly!

Bikes, bicycling, and road safety.

News & Nonsense

  • The League of American Bicyclists ranks Minnesota 5th out of 50 states in the Bicycle-Friendly State Program. Woo. West Virginia? Totally last.
  • Arden Hills wants to make County E between Lexington and Hamline all pretty, and add some bike lanes. Once pretty, they want to re-name it to Lake Johanna Boulevard. (PiPress)
  • HAY LOOK! A bridge reconnecting I35W. (Strib)
  • Richard Dean Anderson, aka MacGyver, talks about how to make a torch out of a bike it’d have to be made of magnesium. BAD IDEA. (I count this as metro news, because per Wikipedia, MacGyver was born in Minnesota.) (Popular Mechanics)
  • Find out how walkable your community is based on WalkScore.com‘s standards. Note that their standards may be daft, as they claim I can walk to the Caribou that is 0.84 miles away, but, trust me, not so much since there are no sidewalks. They also claim the U-Haul Store is a ‘clothing and music’ store. Uh….
  • They’re still trying to figure out how to finish the Cedar Lake Trail around the new Twins Ballpark, aka Target Field. (here)
  • They’re still repairing the MN 43 bridge in Winona.
