having been an avid cyclist when i went to school in the twin cities (Macalester), i found both minneapolis and st. paul to be fairly well-gridded cities that were easily navigable by bike. sure, things get a little screwy around dowtown st. paul with the bluffs and rotated street grid in the CBD, but the situation isn't terribly different over in downtown minneapolis which has a rotated street grid of its own.
