Minneapolis; a bed of roses!

This is our first post as a virtual tour/local insights blog about Minneapolis! Minneapolis By Bike is a guided bike tour company in Minneapolis, Minnesota that loves nothing more than to share our love for the 612 (Minneapolis’ area code) with visitors and locals alike! Maybe you are visiting Minneapolis and stumbled upon this site, maybe you live in the Twin Cities and want to learn more about Minneapolis, keep up with local events or find new places to visit! That’s how we hope this page helps out!

We wanted to start out with an image that we happen to love – recently taken at a performance event in the Lyndale Rose Garden near Lake Harriet!

Yes, we may have been horning in on some private time between this ADORABLE couple in the Rose Gardens, but it was too beautiful of a moment to pass up and not capture. Also, this really speaks of life in our city – am I right Minneapolitans?! Weekends and evenings spent by the lake, taking in nature and the beauty of our city. Minneapolis boasts as (yet again) one of the top park systems in the nation! No amount of credit taken away from our current park system workers, but undoubtedly this is also owed to early prominent Minneapolis residents who took it upon themselves to create the park board, even without city support! To them, we owe this amazing city; lush with parks, lakes and greeneries.

We thought this a good place to start – just a look into Minneapolis life and its beauty. We love it here – and we hope you will too!!
