Minneapolis Bicycle Tour
The number of events held in riverfront parks has exploded in the last ten years as people are drawn to the beauty and accessibility of parks near the downtown core.
The Minneapolis Bike Tour is one such event. In its eighth year, more than 3200 riders participated in the September, 2014 ride. It has become a yearly tradition for cyclers of all ages and abilities. This year, Boom Island Park, along the river, was the start and finish point for riders.
