2017-18 Statewide District Bicycle Plans

MnDOT is developing eight district bicycle plans to advance the work of the Statewide Bicycle System Plan. District Bicycle Plans offer an opportunity for MnDOT to connect with local partners and identify the best places for future investment in making spaces better for people to bicycle. MnDOT’s District Bicycle Plans are set to be released in early 2019.

Minnesota's newest bicycle route

In 2017 Minnesota designated a new U.S. Bicycle Route: USBR 41, the North Star Route, which travels from St. Paul to Grand Portage State Park. The 315-mile long route connects to USBR 41, the Mississippi River Trail. Printable and downloadable electronic/GPS maps are available for both routes.

Two Harbors Bike Route

MnDOT worked to complete preliminary engineering for a bicycle route through Two Harbors along Highway 61. The route is intended to address the needs of residents and visitors alike.
