Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
The greenway is a rail trail especially for bike commuters. It goes right through the heart of the Twin Cities, and isn't really a MUP. It has lanes and everything. I haven't been on it, but I think it's a pretty great thing, especially with this little bike service-center in the middle of it.
