The Minneapolis/St. Paul area is full of hidden gems -- roads that are beautiful and low traffic. The Midwest is also home to some of the finest gravel riding in the world, and in the summer, you'll see a higher percentage of riders rocking fat bikes on mountain bike trails and gravel roads than anywhere else in the world. In the winter, you'll see fat bikes everywhere including those same mountain bike trails and gravel roads.
Minneapolis has a strong commuter culture and overall a lot of bikes on the roads. The infrastructure largely reflects this with fantastic paths (e.g. the Midtown Greenway and the West River Trail along the Mississippi) form a backbone to plentiful bike lanes and "bike boulevards" that take you the last mile to wherever you are headed. The Grand Rounds is a system of 51 miles trails that connects all of Minneapolis' lakes together and brings you from lake-park to lake-park complete with large scale maps and public drinking fountains -- perfect for filling up a bottle.
