Look Who’s Biking; St. Paul, Minnesota

The brave souls of St. Paul, Minnesota (also known as the Twin Cities) have been walking and biking, even during their winter months. According to BikeWalkMove.org, Minnesota ranks as one of the top five bike friendly states and has seen a 33% increase in biking from 2007 to 2010. What’s most interesting, as seen in the infographic below, is that the top 5 bike friendly states are known for their cold, brutal weather. Those hardy folks don’t let winter get in their way of moving. If Minnesota can increase their biking and walking given their winter weather, there’s definitely no excuse for states that enjoy a more temperate climate to increase the number of biking and walking trips!
