  • The Vault The Vault at Saint Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral Minneapolis USA (map)

The Midtown Greenway trail in Minneapolis has been named the best urban bike trail in the nation, used by thousands of cyclists every day. It helped spark the biking revolution in the Twin Cities, and led to hundreds of millions of dollars of economic development along its route. Join the founder of the Midtown Greenway Coalition and original visionary for the Greenway, George Puzak, to learn the history of the Greenway and how a small group of citizens helped build the trail that is nationally and internationally famous. George will be joined for the presentation by Soren Jensen, the current executive director of the Midtown Greenway Coalition.
