Recently spent a few days in the very funky city of Minneapolis in the state of Minnesota. The origin and growth of the city was spurred by the proximity of Fort Snelling, the first major United States military presence in the area, and by its location on Saint Anthony Falls which provided power for sawmills and flour mills. But it is so very much more. From outstanding food to the Guthrie Theater and world class park system designed by Theodore Wirth, it is the bicycling capital of the U.S with over 170 communal bike stations. http://www.bicycling.com/news/featured-stories/1-bike-city-minneapolis
