Ride Boldly!

Bikes, bicycling, and road safety.

July 4 by Bike

As you light up your bike and make your way to fireworks via two wheels, a few gentle reminders:

  • Motorists trying to leave fireworks tend to be cranky about the traffic.

  • The Stone Arch Bridge is closed to bicycles during the fireworks and after.
  • Traffic patterns and bicycle routing near Harriet Island in St. Paul will be odd, and they usually close part of the river path for fireworks.

Get some friends and go down to the Big Rivers Trail near the confluence, sez me. You can watch fireworks from about 6 shows there, and it’s quieter for the escape.
