    Pedestrian/Bike Path Etiquette

    Split path
    2 more images

    Many of the great paths around our urban lakes, parks and riverfront areas are split into two: one for walkers/runners and one for bikers/bladers. Look for markings indicating which is which or just watch what others are doing and follow along. These paths can converge at points so if there's just one walkway and it doesn't have indicated lanes for biking/walking, just stay right and let faster traffic go around you.

    If biking or blading a combined path, PLEASE give walkers/runners advance warning that you're approaching from behind and about to pass ("On your left!") and always keep your speed down. This is more than a courtesy, it's usually a posted safety rule. It's very easy for leashed dogs, children and faster walkers/runners to unexpectedly stray into, or pass via, the left side and into your path. Walkers/runners, do the bikers a favor and keep ipod volumes low enough to hear their warnings.

    Loring Park

    urban oasis

    Minneapolis people love their parks, and Loring Park, at the edge of downtown, and in the heart of a vibrant cultural district, is one of the best. Biking and walking paths cross the park, and there are numerous recreational opportunities: basketball, tennis, boating in a small pond, and winter ice skating.

    Note: Loring Park isn't the safest place to stroll across at night.

    Hockey land

    This is why they play hockey so well in Minnesota!

    Hockey is truly an obsession around here. The state high school hockey tournament always is a sellout and is televised on national TV. Some people think of Minnesota as Canada-South because of our love for the sport.

    If theres a fair going on while you're here, make sure to go, Minnesotans love food on a stick! There's corn on a stick, corn dogs, pork chops on a stick, ribs on a stick, cotton candy on a stick...no if they could only put Tom Thumb donuts on a stick...Tom Thumb donuts are the BEST!!! Have some!
    ...don't forget the beer garden!

    Comedy troup performers....

    Comedy troup performers.

    Known for theaters, I attended the nations oldest ongoing satirical comedy and improv theater, Brave New Workshop. Very talented comic performers called my nephew, Jason, from the audience onto the stage for “questioning” as an “airport terrorist” in “Bushwhacked II”. This production satirically portrays our President and recent crisis both humorously and with respect.

    Bottomless Milk Cup!

    Jeff (Seabiscuit) suggested I try this.

    If you purchase one cup of milk for $1, you can get free refills all day! Plus you can choose between regular and chocolate milk!!
