Visiting the Twin Cities

I just spent 9 days visiting St. Paul. Bicycling appears to be the best way to see the city.

I visited Minnehaha Falls

bicycling along the Mississippi River to get there.

Lots of children riding bicycles, in part because it’s flatter than in Berkeley. Much flatter. My favorite young riders were two urchins or pre-urchins pumping along at a pretty good rate on bicycles with training wheels. Their father skated between them, scooting them over to the right when other bicycles came along.

Unlike many of the children and adults I saw on bicycles, these were properly fitted with helmets.
