Minneapolis is one of 'top cities for cyclists in the USA'. Part of what makes it so great is the Midtown Greenway.

With Heroic Music and Everything! Minneapolis is a strong contender for 'top city for cyclists in the USA'. Part of what makes it so great is the 5.7 mile long Midtown Greenway , which is the highlight in a network of 100 miles of bike paths. It goes from east to west and provides the best way to go through the city at rush hour. It was built over an abandoned railway corridor, showing other cities how their old industrial infrastructure can be upcycled. Check it out in the great video above by our friends at: Streetfilms .
