St. Paul Visitors, take note that Minnesota has been voted the most “Bike Friendly State in the U.S.” This is due in part to the sheer number of off street bike trails, bike lanes and scenic beauty. St. Paul offers cyclists the chance to explore the full length of Summit Avenue (5 miles) which offers the longest stretch of “intact Victorian Architecture in the U.S.” Spring is a beautiful time to go cruising.
Stay at the newly renovated boutique B&B, the Corban Manor Inn, with secure bike space provided and located just a few doors from Summit Avenue. Head out and peddle to the Mississippi River. Ride past the James J. Hill House (tours available), the Governor’s mansion and the former home of F. Scott Fitzgerald. Cycle to the landmark St. Paul Cathedral which is open for passerby’s to peak inside to marvel at the grandeur of this European styled Cathedral.
If you did not bring a bike, but the spirit of the ride overtakes you, just ask the proprietors at the Corban Manor Inn where to rent bikes, including St. Paul’s bike sharing system. Combine Minneapolis and St. Paul, otherwise known as the Twin Cities, to increase the length of your ride. Consider taking the newly opened biking trail from St. Paul to the quaint river town of historic Stillwater, MN, or ride over to the Como Park area for lake riding and beautiful vistas. Learn more.
