The other day I was heading to meet friends at a restaurant on Nicollet Avenue in South Minneapolis. But, it was closed, so Plan B was another restaurant a bit farther north and west. As I sat on my bike, I thought about what route would be best.

Nicollet was an option (bicycles are considered vehicles by law and can ride on any street except highways). But, I knew that only a block or so away 1st Avenue offered a bike lane that would be a quieter way north. Off I went.
