It's summer in the good ol' MPLS, one of the best times of year to explore those hidden back-alley, under-bridge, over-fence destinations. It's true that our little city has some of the most gorgeous places to park your ride, crack a cold one and marvel at both natural and man-made creations. Check my homie, Mike Scott's (@84ability), super sweet photography featuring some of MPLS's quintessential destinations. I threw in some winter pics to cool you off and remind y'all that these days are few and precious. Get out there. #savesummer
White Sands Beach - This seems to be the new “Hidden Beach”, for better or worse…
River Bottoms - Beer break during some great CX riding. #wicked_flip
Dinkytown pedestrian bridge near Wilkins Hall - The skyline and a rail yard, a winning combination.
Bridge #9 on the Dinkytown Greenway - This used to be a fun spot until they installed cameras…
Hennepin Avenue Bridge - from the shoreline next to the Fed building. Under-appreciated whiskey break spot.
Martin Olav Sabo Bridge - January - when only the cool kids are out.
Cedar Lake Trail under I-394 - A little shortcut through the adjacent park to some of those Bryn Mawr Stupor Bowl stops.
Fort Snelling State Park - I always stop at the overlook here when rolling to or from Saint Paul.
