ST. PAUL, Minn. (KNSI) For the first time since 2001, the Minnesota Department of Transportation has published an updated edition of the state's bicycle map.
The map--which is available in both paper and electronic formats--makes it easier for cyclists to plan long-distance trips.
MnDOT Senior Transoprtation Planner Michelle Musser-Pooler says map information includes details on roads, including shoulder width, pavement type and traffic volumes, state historic sites, state and regional trails and safety tips.
Minnesota ranked fourth overall in the "bicycle friendly state" rankings earlier this year.
Paper versions of the map are available at the MnDOT Central Office Builiding at 395 John Ireland Boulevard in St. Paul, and at the Kick Gax exhibit inside the Eco Experience building on Randall Avenue during the Minnesota State Fair.
The electronic version of the map is available at mndot.gov/bike/maps.html.
