My wife was given a choice of being laid off from her work in the SF North Bay area or transferring to Minneapolis. I may be joining her in the south of the greater Minneapolis area after a few weeks if my current job does not go permanent. Within a few miles of where the 494 and the 35 cross. Having biked in Denver for years I have an idea of how much more gear I will need to bike there; studded tires, extra thermal undies, over booties, etc. When does winter cycling end? I see a lot of lakes. Mosquito problems? Twin Cities Bicycle Club I know of, any other fun clubs in my area? I am a life member of the LAB and the UMCA. I was a USCF official many moons ago. The wife and I both need to know if your buses are bike friendly? Thanks for any help.
