Saint Paul is Designed as a Bikers Wonderland.
Saint Paul is a wonderful place to come and bike. Cycle around uptown, though the cities, around the lakes, in the dog friendly parks, hidden valleys, rolling hills and massive roadways all connected and bicycle friendly. Many bike tours are designed around visiting breweries, stopping at landmark restaurants, or visiting the many trails with views of waterfalls and the many river ways. Come with your friends and family and enjoy the many beautiful trails we have to offer. One thing you will say fore sure – Saint Paul is one of the most bicycle friendly cities in America! We welcome anything you would like to share that will help make Minnesota more bike friendly and a safe city to ride.

Bruce Vento Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge – In Sweed Hollow.
Bruce Vento, a man with great vision, this bridge anchors the historic East Side with Saint Paul and the mighty Mississippi. This project is about providing a bicycle and pedestrian connection between two major trails and the Bruce Vento Nature Sanctuary. It requires bridging over four lanes of Warner Road and over 200 feet of railroad Right-of-way. The importance of the connection as well as recognition of the obstacles limiting access for St. Paul’s Eastside community led to the allocation of Federal funds for design and preliminary engineering of a bridge to complete the connection.
