Brompton US Championship 2013

Drafting a trip report and this one is a doozy! In transit today, but already sorting through photos and ephemeral. Also, came back with something blue and orange.

In the meantime, there is a group on Flickr posting photographs. And here is my Top 10 list of things to see and do in Minneapolis (with a bit a cycling slant):

  1. Walk or Bike across the Martin Olav Sabo Bridge.
  2. Cruise along the Mississippi on a Nice Ride (don’t miss the Mill Ruins Park).
  3. Have a Jucy Lucy at Matt’s Bar on 35th and Cedar. Make sure you bring cash!
  4. Support Kristy and Erin at the Bees Kneez by purchasing some honey at the Kingfield Farmer Market. You can learn more about their story at Kickstarter.
  5. Take a date to Bryant Lake Bowl.
  6. Enjoy a cappuccino at One on One Bicycle Studio & Go Coffee.
  7. Skip the rental car and use Metro Transit. The Blue Line travels under the Martin Olav Sabo Bridge.
  8. Wait for a good windy day, after a nice thunderstorm, and stand on the Stone Arch Bridge.
  9. Bike, bike, bike. Minneapolis is ridiculously bike friendly so find the Greenway.
  10. Visit Calhoun Cycle and spend an hour or two with Luke and Company.

Bonus: Visit Big Brain Comics and Glass Endeavors. Have a specific project in mind with the latter.
