It snowed in Minneapolis. A normal thing for this time of year. Unusually, though, the bike trails were indifferently cleared and on the road the plows piled their snow in the bike lanes. Seems like it's better and safer to stay on the main roads rather than try to use bike facilities.
It's starting to look like the city is caring less about bikers, or at least winter bikers.
I know we had a big snow, but still the bike lanes, including the "protected" lanes, and the trails are all impassable.
Yesterday I was in a meeting where people discussed adding bike lanes to a street that already has no place to store snow. Sometimes I think the goal for some people is bike lanes -- not people on bikes.
They city has cleaned up fairly well. Really, the only problem spots were the entrance and exit to/from the Franklin bridge westbound. Lots of snow at the entrance and iffy surface condition at the exit.
